MOSCOW, September 05. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia will raise the issue of violence against journalists in armed conflicts, including in Ukraine, at a forthcoming 27th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Friday.
The session will be held in Geneva on September 8-27, the ministry said.
