Journalists near Parliament picket against creation of Ministry of Information

03.12.2014, 00:14

On December 2, journalists were picketing near the building of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, in protest against the plans to create the Ministry for the issues of informational policy. Activists of movements «Chesno» (“Honestly”) and «Stop Censorship» consider it inappropriate to create such an agency without any preliminary public discussion about it.
