The journalist Vasily Muravitsky, who is accused in Ukraine of high treason for his publications in the media, was doused with Brilliant green (dye) after leav.

The journalist Vasily Muravitsky, who is accused in Ukraine of high treason for his publications in the media, was doused with Brilliant green (dye) after leaving the court in Zhytomyr, reported his lawyer Andrey Domansky to RIA Novosti.
On Monday, August 6th, 2018 the Korolevsky district court of Zhytomyr city left Muravitsky under house arrest, having rejected the claim of the prosecutor’s office.
He also noted that during the court session nationalists from C14 and Avtomaidan  shouted out threats in the journalist’s direction.
The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) detained Muravitsky in Zhytomyr on August 1st, 2017. He is suspected of treason, infringing on the territorial integrity and inviolability of Ukraine, violating the equality of citizens, and creating a terrorist organisation. According to the SBU, his articles were published on “websites that were administered from the Russian Federation and the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine”. The prosecutor’s office reported that the journalist may face up to 15 years of imprisonment with the confiscation of property. At the end of June the Zhytomyr court released Muravitsky under house arrest until August 25th.
The Russian Foreign Ministry called Muravitsky’s detention another episode in the campaign to forcefully suppress the oppositional media in Ukraine, and called on the countries of the OSCE and the Council of Europe, as well as international organisations to condemn the policy of Kiev against the media.
The international organization Amnesty International considers Muravitsky as a prisoner of conscience and urges to immediately release him. The organisation notes that all charges brought to the journalist stem from his work with Russian-speaking online resources. The editor-in-chief of the “” website that Muravitsky also wrote for, Iskander Hisamov, said that the persecution of the journalist is political repression. The secretary of the Union of Journalists of Russia and member of the executive committee of the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) Timur Shafir considers such charges as new proof that the authorities of Ukraine try to exclude other points of view from the information space.
