VIENNA, September 12./ITAR-TASS/.OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media Dunja Mijatovic called on the Ukrainian authorities with a demand to treat mass media with respect in her statement on Friday that followed a recent raid by law enforcers on the editorial office of the Vesti newspaper in Kiev.

“I call on the Ukrainian authorities to refrain from any measures which could intimidate members of the media and impede the work of media outlets,” Mijatovic said. “National security concerns related to the current challenges in Ukraine should not justify disproportionate restrictions on freedom of expression and freedom of the media.”

On September 11 officers of Ukraine’s Security Service searched the editorial office, confiscated the equipment, working materials and personal belongings of the Vesti staff.

“The SBU reportedly conducted the search as part of its criminal investigation into the newspaper’s publications, which allegedly contained information infringing Ukraine's territorial integrity,” the representative’s office said.
