After Mejlis ban, Crimean 'authorities' turn to mass media

'Chief prosecutor' of Russian-occupied Crimea Natalya Poslonskaya says she is going to probe the recently restored Ukrainian radio broadcast on the peninsula "for extremism."

"Now the prosecutor's office does not have any information as to some radio waves in Crimea that have signs of extremism," Poklonskaya stated.

"But we are preparing an instruction to monitor this situation, and if certain conditions are discovered, certain facts, there will be a check for signs of extremism in these broadcasts, and all necessary measures will be taken to block the broadcast by technical means," the Russia-appointed 'chief prosecutor' added.

On May 26, Ukraine's UR-1 Ukrainske Radio (Ukrainian Radio) started broadcasting in the Russian-occupied Crimea.
