MOSCOW, May 11. /TASS/. The Moscow Journalists’ Union has angrily protested the publication on a Ukrainian website of personal data of Russian and foreign media workers, accredited in the self-proclaimed republics in Donbass as a violation of international rights and freedoms.
Earlier, the Myrotvorets (Peacekeeper) website disclosed the personal data of journalists working for the RT television channel and TASS, and also BBC, Reuters, France Presse, CNN, Bloomberg, Al-Jazeera, Associated Press, the dailies Independent and Liberacion and other mass media. The online resource has published the names of correspondents and of the media these journalists work for, their current position, the country of origin, mobile phone numbers, e-mail addresses and dates of presence in the territory in the territories beyond the Kiev authorities’ control.
"The presidium of the Moscow Journalists’ Union, incorporating more than 15,000 mass media workers, including those on the Peacekeeper website’s list, expresses deep indignation over the publication of personal data, which can be used by radical nationalists. Such attitude to journalists is an act of gross violation of international rights and freedoms," the Moscow Journalists’ Union said.
The MJU’s presidium is addressing Ukraine’s leaders and law enforcement agencies with a "demand for the proper investigation of this incident and for properly punishing those responsible for disclosing the personal data of Russian and foreign media workers."
