Avakov qualified dismissal of Alasania as provocation and crackdown on press freedom
The Minister of the Interior Arsen Avakov said that the dismissal of Chairman of the Board of the Public television and radio company of Ukraine (NSTU) Zurab Alasania was a “provocative action and an attack on the press freedom”, as he told it interviewed by DW. Avakov added that he did not found it as a good idea to dismiss the head of the public television from office two months before the presidential election. We should closely examine it, he said, “I consider this not as a dismissal, I consider this as very serious provocation and crackdown on the press freedom two months before the election”.
