Russian journalist Ana Korobkova has claimed that she has written over 1,397 reports denouncing compatriots who have criticized the war in Ukraine. According to a report by the BBC, Korobkova stated that she feels joy when those accused of her denunciations are punished. The new censorship laws introduced after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine have led to more than 8,000 cases being opened against people accused of discrediting the Russian army. OVD-Info, an independent Russian human rights group, reports this information.
Korobkova mainly targets media personalities and international journalists such as the BBC. One of her targets is anthropologist Aleksandra Arkhipova, who has been reported seven times by Korobkova. Arkhipova considers reporting as her mission and believes that Korobkova’s actions could have contributed to her being labeled a foreign agent by the Russian state in May.
Korobkova hides the city she lives in and continues to write accusations against her compatriots, stating that she has a lot of work to do. Despite this, Arkhipova is not sorry for those who have been punished for their criticism of the war in Ukraine and believes that their actions will ultimately lead to victory for Ukraine.
