Caught On Video: Ukrainian Banker Tries To Delete Recording After Assault On RFE/RL Journalists
The head of the State Export-Import Bank of Ukraine, Yevhen Metsher, announced he was stepping down pending an investigation of an assault on RFE/RL journalists during an interview with him in Kyiv. Angered by the reporter's questions, Metsher instructed security guards to take their cameras and video cards.
