Donbas militant media – nothing bad about militants or Russia, nothing good about Ukraine

The Internet media in the self-proclaimed ‘Donbas and Luhansk people’s republics’ [DNR, LNR] have virtually nothing but praise for Russia and, of course, themselves, while finding nothing positive to say about areas under Ukrainian government control | детальніше

Another Rights Activist ‘Deported’ from Russian-occupied Crimea

Russia is increasingly using citizenship as one of its weapons against dissent and civic activism in occupied Crimea. It has claimed that imprisoned Crimean filmmaker Oleg Sentsov and civic activist Oleksandr Kolchenko ‘automatically’ became Russian citizens as its excuse for not returning the two Ukrainian political prisoners, yet uses lack of Russian citizenship in other cases to remove people from their homeland. | детальніше

Russia to publish “anti-Ukrainian Ukrainian newspaper” in occupied Crimea

The Russian media has widely reported plans to publish “the first Ukrainian-language newspaper in Crimea”. ‘First’ it is not, but it will be the only paper in Ukrainian since Russia’s invasion and occupation of Crimea. It may be used merely for propaganda purposes, however the ‘Ukrainian society’ supposedly behind the initiative was formed by the occupation government and has an openly anti-Kyiv position | детальніше

Russian FSB stage abduction to deprive Crimean Tatar leader of his lawyer

Instead of abandoning the extraordinary ‘separatism’ charges against Crimean Tatar leader Ilmi Umerov for rightly saying that Russia should stop occupying Crimea, Russia’s FSB are resorting to illegal measures aimed at preventing a well-known Russian lawyer from representing Umerov. | детальніше

Russia has added Crimean Tatar Mejlis leader Ilmi Umerov to its notoriously long list of so-called ‘Terrorists and Extremists’ for saying, as do all democratic states, that Russia should be made to leave Crimea. With its customary contempt for presumption of innocence, it has also added all 19 Crimean Muslims whom it is holding in custody and charging with unproven involvement in an organization which is legal in Ukraine. | детальніше

Misleading OSCE Media report ignores Russia’s annexation of Crimea

An OSCE representative should certainly treat Crimea and areas under the control of Kremlin-backed militants as Ukraine, but ignoring Russia’s culpability for flagrant rights violations leads to serious distortion of the facts. This is just one of the concerns about the report by Dunja Mijatović, the OSCE Representative on Media Freedom. | детальніше

Ukraine bans import of ’anti-Ukrainian’ books from Russia

Ukraine’s parliament has passed a law aimed at checking books from an aggressor state for ‘anti-Ukrainian content’ and, where such content is found, banning them. While the ongoing abundance on the Ukrainian market of material full of toxic lies and propaganda is of concern, doubts arise about the law’s efficacy, as well as over the mechanisms for achieving its stated purpose. | детальніше
