Member of the EP and Brexit political party John Tennant emphasizes that it is hard to imagine that the Parliament would intervene in the editorial policy of the mass media in his country. 

"We can find a fine line between publishing a report in order to let the society know about problems and between the government, which could try to set the control under the media through the publishing of certain reports. Let not allow the authorities to use different ways including outside interference to limit the freedom of speech," he stated.

Tennant also advised Ukrainian journalists to fight for their right of speech freedom and not to give up.

"Just keep trying, keep fighting. Western society did not become free at one moment. There were revolutions, civil and world wars. We were fighting for liberty gradually, consistently and the truth will win, just keep going, do not give up and continue fighting," the MEP underlined.
