Ukrainian anti-corruption journalists attacked, then charged with ‘invading privacy’ of Putin associate Medvedchuk

Ukraine’s National Police have initiated a criminal investigation into claims that journalists from the Skhemy anti-corruption program violated the right to privacy of controversial Ukrainian politician Viktor Medvedchuk. The move comes soon after criminal charges were brought against guards who tried to prevent the journalists from carrying out their investigation, and is viewed by the  Skhemy team as retaliation and an attempt to intimidate them. | детальніше

Sinister attempt in Ukraine to arrest / abduct opposition Azerbaijani journalist Fikret Huseynli

An attempt was made in Kyiv on March 5 to detain Fikret Huseynli, a journalist working in exile for an opposition channel, and facing a baffling ‘extradition check’ in Ukraine.  Huseynli received political asylum and later citizenship in Holland and there is no way that Ukraine can legally extradite him to Azerbaijan.  The events on 5 March, however, compound concern that an attempt could be made to abduct him, and hand him over to the Azerbaijani authorities.. | детальніше

Ukraine’s government accused of following Russia with new Internet surveillance measures

Prominent Ukrainian NGOs have demanded the government reject plans underway to allow the Security Service [SBU] to use special means of surveillance of Internet providers.  They warn of the scope for excessive snooping and interference by law enforcement and regulatory bodies similar to the repressive measures used in the Russian Federation. | детальніше

‘Treason’ retrial of controversial Ukrainian blogger Ruslan Kotsaba goes hopelessly wrong

The re-trial of Ruslan Kotsaba, a highly contentious blogger and Amnesty International’s first prisoner of conscience in post-Maidan Ukraine has been suspended with a court in the Ivano-Frankivsk oblast sending the indictment back to the prosecutor’s office. The Dolyna District Court concluded that the prosecution had failed to formulate the indictment, as required by law.   It remains to be seen whether the prosecutor will try to reformulate the charges, or will let this case which Ukraine seems doomed to lose at the European Court of Human Rights die an ignominious death. | детальніше

Russia backed Luhansk ‘republic’ bans Jehovah’s Witnesses and other ‘non-traditional’ faiths

The self-proclaimed ‘Luhansk people’s republic’ [LPR] has yet again followed Russia’s lead, this time by banning the Jehovah’s Witnesses, calling them and other banned faiths ‘religious groups’.  The move comes just days after the Kremlin-backed ‘LPR parliament’ passed several ‘laws’, including one aimed at hunting down and prohibiting so-called extremism in religious or political organizations, as well as in the media.  . | детальніше

Internet providers forced to conceal total FSB surveillance in occupied Crimea & Russia

Any Crimean still using Russian social media like VKontakte or Odnoklassnik for correspondence should close them down immediately, preferably after deleting all personal messages and posts from the last decade.  It is likely that Russia’s FSB [security service] has long had unimpeded access to Russian-based Internet messengers, postal services and social media, however a new ruling has now strictly prohibited any Internet providers from even divulging details of their collaboration with the FSB. | детальніше

Crimean journalist & politician jailed on ‘extortion’ charges for criticism of United Russia party

The ‘trial’ in Russian-occupied Crimea of journalist Alexei Nazimov and politician Pavel Stepanchenko is descending into farce, after never really making much sense.  This has not prevented the two men being held in detention since October 2016, and the lack of any substance to the charges may well have no impact upon the eventual verdict.    | детальніше

Yes, Ukraine’s Oligarchs Own the Airwaves, but Their Days Are Numbered

Oligarchs own the airwaves in Ukraine. More than 75 percent of Ukrainians regularly watch TV channels owned by Ukrainian oligarchs Viktor Pinchuk, Ihor Kolomoisky, Dmytro Firtash, and Rinat Akhmetov. But this is hardly news since TV serves as the primary source of information for 58 percent of Ukrainians. | детальніше

Crimean Tatar on trial for not betraying his oath of allegiance to Ukraine

How do you flesh out the ‘trial’ of a Ukrainian prosecuted by the Russian occupiers of his homeland for writing on Facebook that ‘Crimea always was, and remains Ukrainian”?   A Russian-controlled prosecutor and court in occupied Crimea are trying to find something sensible to add to this grotesque ‘trial’ of Crimean Tatar activist Suleyman Kadyrov and failing badly.  | детальніше

Ukraine imposes baffling ban on work by renowned English historian & others

Ukraine’s State Television and Radio Broadcasting Committee has announced a ban on the import into Ukraine of 25 books published in Russia. The list is so baffling that one might suspect the reports were fake news aimed at discrediting Ukraine had the announcement not been posted on the Committee’s official website. | детальніше

Police killer of journalist Georgy Gongadze could be freed amid silence about those who ordered the crime

A court in Ukraine has effectively doubled the number of years which former Police General Oleksy Pukach is considered to have served of his prison sentence for the murder of journalist Georgy Gongadze. It has been suggested that a deal may be underway to give Pukach his freedom if he stops “pointing the finger at” former President Leonid Kuchma | детальніше

Suspended sentence for the savage murder of Maidan journalist Viacheslav Veremiy

The first and only trial so far over the fatal attack on journalist Viacheslav Veremiy during Euromaidan has ended in a four-year suspended sentence with a two-year probation period passed on Yury Krysin for his undisputed part in the killing.  Judge Oleh Linnyk from the Shevchenkivsk Court in Kyiv, ignored the prosecutor’s call for a six-year prison sentence, and found him guilty only of ‘hooliganism’, with his alleged repentance and two underage children given as mitigating circumstances. | детальніше
