Hromadske journalists lose accreditation after reporting from liberated Kherson
Hromadske journalists Anastasia Stanko and Mykola Pastyko have been stripped of their accreditation for their reports from liberated Kherson. Detector Media reports this, citing Anastasia Stanko.
In his comment to the media outlet, Yevhen Yerin, UAF Public Relations Department representative, said that the de-accreditation process is still ongoing, so such decisions may also be made with regards to other media that were working in Kherson.
The General Staff noted that the order of the UAF Commander-in-Chief No. 73, dated 03.03.2022, is delivered to all media representatives as they are being given their press card.
Citing its sources, Detector Media reports that the work permits of at least six journalists, including those from CNN and SkyNews filming crews, have been revoked. Suspilne and Hromadske's filming crews have also been working in Kherson after the liberation of the city. The Rada channel has also done a live stream from Kherson.
We remind that on November 11, on the day Kherson was liberated, Operational Command "South" announced that mass media's access to settlements that were de-occupied in November 2022 would be temporarily restricted.
"Please note that work in the settlements located in the combat zone is regulated by the order of the UAF Commander-in-Chief No. 73, dated 03.03.2022; non-compliance with this order may become grounds for a journalist's accreditation being revoked. These settlements will be accessible no sooner than the defense forces complete stabilization efforts," the military stressed.
Help us be even more cool!
