A letter she sent to Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko Monday said reporters continued paying the maximum price as they did their job in the zone of conflict.
“Members of the media continue to pay the highest price possible,” Mijatovic wrote in a letter today to the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko. “I fully understand the difficult situation in Ukraine and the fact that the national authorities do not control parts of the territory controlled by separatists in the eastern part of the country, but once again I call on all parties in this conflict to respect media freedom and refrain from any violence against members of the media,” Mijatovic said.
She expressed condolences to Klyan’s family and fellow-journalists.
The bus came under gunfire near Avdeyevka, a township on the outskirts of Donetsk.
“With Klyan’s death, the death toll of journalists killed in eastern Ukraine has increased to five. I urge the authorities to swiftly and thoroughly investigate the circumstances of Klyan’s death and all other deadly attacks on journalists, and to hold those responsible accountable,” Mijatovic said.
