KGB "Department of Kind Affairs" Interested in Journalists
BAJ member Maryja Savushkina is insistently invited by some unknown man, who represents himself as "a representative of KGB Department of Kind Affairs" by phone for a meeting.
KGB representative Yury phoned to Maryja’s personal mobile number on February 21, 2008. He proposed to meet with the journalist.
Having received a refusal, he re-phoned in the morning of February 22 to another mobile number, belonging to Maryja Savushkina. (The KGB-men’s phone number was encrypted.)
"I refused again and the KGB representative told that I was unwise", noted Maryja.
The journalist retorted to the unknown special police officer that she would come for "a talk", if she received a corresponding writ from the KGB. She connects these threatening phone calls with her professional activity for independent media outlets.
