13.10.10


The OSCE representative on Freedom of the Media, Dunja Mijatovic, said today during a press conference held in Kyiv that Ukraine must take urgent steps to safeguard media freedom in Ukraine.

She stressed that "concrete action is needed before the current negative developments become a permanent indicator of the deteriorated media climate in the country..."

Mijatovic continued by saying that "to restore the trust of the Ukrainian society and of the international community, the authorities should continue to publicly condemn and, more importantly, swiftly investigate all cases of violence and intimidation of journalists, giving priority to the case of Klymentiev, who is still missing." 

She also called on the government "to refrain from any attempt to influence or censor media content to comply with their international media freedom standards and OSCE media freedom commitments."
