Following the tragic events, authorities in Ukraine's capital, Kiev, were challenged to ensure safety for news professionals working in that country's armed conflict zones.
“The situation with the mass media in Ukraine is constantly deteriorating. We have to face again the fact that Russian journalists truthfully reporting on Ukrainian events are being hunted,” warned Andrei Kelin, Russia's ambassador to the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), quoted on Russia's Foreign Ministry website last Friday.“If Russian journalists had been detained and tortured before, now they are just being killed,” he was quoted as saying. “We join OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media Dunja Mijatovic in calling on Kiev’s authorities to protect media representatives working in Ukrainian conflict zones and to bring those responsible for the tragedy to trial,” he added.
Last week, Mijatovic expressed concern that “the media freedom environment” was deteriorating in Ukraine. “I am also worried about the harassment of journalists in the country, which has a negative effect on media professionals who strive to inform the public. I continue to call on all parties to let journalists do their job in a free and safe manner,” she said in a statement then.
