The Kyiv Garrison Military Prosecutor’s Office has for the second time terminated a criminal investigation into overt obstruction of the work of anti-corruption journalists. Important as the original investigation into suspiciously expensive cars driven by SBU [Security Service] officials was, it might have been forgotten were it not for the prosecutor’s stubborn resistance to carrying out the promised criminal investigation | детальніше

Ukraine must not become like Russia – Free Journalist & Blogger Ruslan Kotsaba!

However objectionable we may find somebody’s views, it is Russia who is imprisoning its citizens for expressing opinions and Ukraine should not follow suit. The charges of state treason against blogger and journalist Ruslan Kotsaba are manifestly unwarranted | детальніше

Russian Journalists Sent to Be Killed

Russia’s use of the death of two journalists for its high-profile trial in Russia of Nadiya Savchenko, the Ukrainian military pilot captured in Ukraine seems particularly cynical given the total silence over the deaths of other Russian journalists, including one who was almost certainly deliberately sent to his death. | детальніше

Pro-Russian propagandist Graham Phillips detained in Riga

Graham Phillips, a Briton well-known for his propaganda coverage in excruciatingly bad Russian of the Kremlin-provoked and armed conflict in Donbas, has been detained by police in Riga.

Honouring Ukrainian poet Taras Shevchenko banned in Russian-occupied Crimea

The de facto authorities under Russian occupation have refused to allow the traditional gathering in Simferopol on March 9.

For Crimea under Russian occupation those times have returned. | детальніше

Ukraine’s shame if vital Crimean Tatar TV channel ATR now closes

It is almost a year since Russia tried to silence the unique Crimean Tatar television channel ATR, forcing it to close in Russian-occupied Crimea.

Journalist named Ukraine’s First Prisoner of Conscience in 5 years

Amnesty International has named Ukrainian freelance journalist and blogger Ruslan Kotsaba a prisoner of conscience in its latest report. The NGO’s coverage of events in Donbas and Crimea can be disputed, but its assessment of Kotsaba’s ongoing imprisonment over contentious utterances but on even more dubious charges seems depressingly fair | детальніше

Scandalous French ‘Masks of the Revolution’ film gets Russian ‘human rights’ award

If Russian involvement in the making of French filmmaker Paul Moreira’s “Masks of the Revolution’ remains in question, there can be no doubt about the Russian propaganda drive now underway.

Security Service guard found guilty of unlawfully detaining anti-corruption journalists

Despite one small but important victory, protection of journalists carrying out their work remains on paper, with the norm criminalizing obstruction of journalists in their work seldom applied. Most worryingly such impunity continues in cases where journalists have been exposing alleged corruption by law enforcement officials. | детальніше
