How ironic, this reporter is charged with "calls to action aimed at violating the territorial integrity of the Russian Federation," in connection with an article he wrote in 2015, according to his employer. Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014." Does that sound familiar, lol, Russia is charging this reporter for the same thing that Russia is trying to do!!!!
