Romaniuk: lion’s share of violations of journalists’ rights in Ukraine is directly related to Russian aggression and separatists
The executive director of the Institute of Mass Information Oksana Romaniuk says that a lion’s share of violations of journalists’ rights in Ukraine, about which “Reporters without borders” informed, are a direct outcome of the Russian aggression and of the separatists’ groups' actions. This was her comment on Facebook regarding the summary of «Reporters without borders» concerning violence against journalists in 2014.
She was referring to the International Freedom of Press rating - 2014 published by the “Reporters” today where Ukraine became one of the worst countries of the world, covering the period from December 1 2013, to November 30, 2014.
“One more nuance” – Romaniuk said – “In this rating, Ukraine is the territory where this aggression took place, yet one cannot blame Ukraine for all these cases. Objectively, a lion’s share of the violations is the direct outcome of Russian aggression and the actions of separatist groups.”
