Czech mass media modified title on Zelensky, but article was OK, they said

25.04.2019, 17:26
The edition of “Český rozhlas Plushas changed the title of the article on newly elected president Volodymyr Zelensky. Instead of “Jew at the head of Ukrainian fascists” the edition put “Jew became at the head of Ukraine”. But, the edition claimed said they did not see any insulting in the text, as the Ukrainian Embassy in Czech Republic told in his page in Facebook, as to Ukrinform. “As to the title, I think it is not good, that’s why we changed it. The author expected all listeners and readers understand irony and first of all, they would read attentively all the text to get the context”, the editor in chief told. The content of the Jan Fingerland’s story is considered “correct in facts” and does not see anything inadmissible in it, thus, no reason to take off the text and audio from the archives, they said. IMI informed, the Embassy of Ukraine in Prague has demanded a Czech mass media “Český rozhlas” to apologize due to a story on newly elected president Volodymyr Zelensky. The author of the material titled “Jew at the head of Ukrainian fascists”, Jan Fingerland, told that Ukraine, a country with no reputation has elected “Jew Zelensky” only due to the hopeless situation as the policy of all other candidates was unsuccessful. “Dear Český rozhlas Plus, you think that everything is ok with your article? It is gross and we expect the apologies”, the message that Ukraine diplomats posted in Twitter said.
