PRESS FREEDOM IN UKRAINE - WORST SINCE ORANGE REVOLUTION

31.01.13


Press Freedom 2013

The independent organisation, Reporters without Borders, today published its report on world press freedom. Ukraine has slipped ten places to 126th, inbetween Honduras and Algeria, and only two places above Afghanistan - the worst result since the Orange Revolution.

Commenting on developments in Ukraine, the report says,

 

"Just as it assumed the rotating chairmanship of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) Ukraine (126th , -10) set the worst record for the media since the Orange Revolution in 2004. The chronically high level of violence towards journalists hit a new peak, while impunity remained total. Such an unhealthy atmosphere served only to increase the vulnerability of independent news outlets to ever-stronger pressure."
