KIEV, December 24. /TASS/. The absolute majority of Ukrainians that make 82% of those surveyed are convinced that Ukrainian media should be engaged not in propaganda, but cover unbiasedly the current situation in the country, say findings of a sociological survey conducted by Kiev International Institute of Sociology on the order of public organization Telekritika.
Commenting on these reports at a news conference on Wednesday, Telekritika program director Roman Shutov noted that Ukrainian media have lost a large part of its audience when they started distorting information about events in highly volatile Ukrainian industrial area Donbas at the start of the conflict. “Local residents saw that something wrong is with them (Ukrainian media) and they turned away from them,” Shutov explained his idea.
In this respect, the expert urged Ukrainian journalists to cover fairly events in the country. “We, journalists, should be honest to ourselves, do not deceive anyone. We should keep in contact with those we have lost,” he said, referring to Donbas residents. “Unfortunately, we are speaking much about them and are saying little for them: we do not give them information which they need,” the expert admitted.
