MOSCOW, December 20 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s Security Council in early 2013 will consider measures to toughen control over investigations of cases of assaults on journalist, Russian President Vladimir Putin pledged on Thursday.
“It is imperative to toughen control over investigations of such crimes,” Putin said at his big news conference. “And I promise that we shall consider this issue at a special meeting with members of the Russian Security Council on the very first working days next year.”
According to the president, the journalist community is part of entire society. “It is involved in the life of society, often it is involved in commercial activities. So, it is necessary to find out the causes of this or that crime,” he added.
According to the International Committee to Protect Journalists, as many as 43 journalists were killed across the globe in 2011. One murder of a journalist was registered in Russia. In 2012, a total of 67 journalists fell victims to violence in the world. On December 5, a Russian journalist, Kazbek Gekkiyev, who was television anchorman of a regional branch of the All-Russia Television and Radio Broadcasting Company, was killed in Nalchik.
