On February 12, editor of Politik.am Boris Murazi took to his Facebook page to report that anonymous people had broken into the editorial office, had called him on the phone and made a threat after not finding him there.
Later, Politik.am also released footage that serves as evidence of what Boris Murazi had reported.
