MOSCOW, July 21. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine topped the rating of the most dangerous countries for journalists for the first time, shows the research by the International News Safety Institute (INSI) monitoring conditions for journalists in different countries.
The report shows the internal conflict in Ukraine brought it to the top five countries for the first time in the 10 years of the rating’s history.
In January - June 2014, the military conflict in Ukraine killed seven journalists, five - over the last two months alone, when the military confrontation escalated to its worst in the country’s south-east. Among them were the Channel One camera man Anatoly Klyan, state TV and radio broadcasting company’s production team Igor Kornelyuk and Anton Voloshin, the Italian journalist Andrea Ronchelli and his interpreter Andrei Mironov.
Ukraine even beat Iraq, traditionally considered one of the most dangerous places for journalists. The conflict there killed six journalists over the first six months of the year. Syria and Pakistan follow on the ranking with five journalists dead in each of the countries.
A total of 61 journalists died at work during the reporting period, 1.5 times more than a year earlier (40).
