The annual monitorings that the Institute of Mass Information held, evidence that the Crimean media report less and less about Ukraine year after year. Oksana Romanyuk, the IMI Executive Director, said at the first Crimean media conference, which took place on September 1.

“The impression is that the pro-government Crimean media want to completely squeeze out everything Ukrainian from the media and cultural landscape of the peninsula. At the same time, the Russian media mostly mention Crimea either in the news about emergencies or in propaganda, ” as Oksana Romaniuk said. 

At the same time, according to the executive director of IMI, there is a positive trend in the Ukrainian media. Compared to last year, the number of articles about Crimea in the Ukrainian media has increased by a third. These are mostly statements by politicians, officials and information on human rights, in particular on Radio Liberty freelancer Vladyslav Yesypenko detained in Crimea. However, coverage of happenings on the peninsula is occasional, rather than planned. The number of news items is limited due to a small percent of reliable information from the Crimea and the danger of Ukrainian journalists working on the peninsula, who are arrested and accused with spying.
