Mijatovic: OSCE urges Russia to cancel ‘terrorist list’
The list includes dissident reporters
The OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media released a statement saying that the Organization is concerned about Russia’s ‘list of terrorists and extremists’, which has been published most recently. Mijatovic stressed there are names of several opposition journalists famous for their anti-Kremlin views.
‘Releasing such list might pose a threat to security of journalists’, she said, adding that the government is obliged to provide security to media representatives and do not expose them to persecutions by law enforcers.
The 'terrorist list' was released on July 12 in Russia. It features names of some 6,000 individuals; among them, there are names of Ukrainian Mykola Semena (‘Krym.Realii’) and Anna Andriyevskaya (Russia’s Centre for Journalist Investigations).
Mijatovic expressed confidence that the decision to add the reporters to the list is due to their critical position against the government. She urged the Russian authorities to cancel the list.
