Russian occupiers still in Poti, abusing journalists

Russian soldiers are not allowing Poti shipyard personnel to enter the port facility. Illegal checkpoints are still present in the city. The Russian army is positioned at the entrance to Poti and in Nabada.

Russian occupiers treat journalists with particularly bad grace. They do not let media representatives take photos or carry video equipment and threaten to open fire on those who disobey them. The occupiers are asking all journalists to present accreditation from the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
