Klimkin: Sushchenko’s release should be priority for international community
Ukraine’s Foreign Minister met with OSCE’s media freedom representative Dunja Mijatovic
The release of Ukrainian reporter Roman Sushchenko from captivity in Russia must be the priority for the international society, including the OSCE. Pavlo Klimkin, Ukraine’s Foreign Minister said this during his meeting with Dunja Mijatovic, OSCE’s representative for media freedom.
Klimkin added that Russia’s actions in this field are unacceptable. Specifically, he mentioned systematic repressions against journalists in the occupied Crimea – such as closing ATR TV channel and persecutions of reporters standing against the Russian occupation of the peninsula. ‘A good example of such repressions against the dissidents was opening the criminal case against reporter Mykola Semena’, the minister said.
He added the freedom of speech and protection of rights of reporters is one of the key prerogatives of the democratic development of Ukraine.
