VIENNA, February 18. /TASS/. Representative on Freedom of the Media at The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), Dunja Mijatovic, has not reacted in any way so far to the decision of Kiev authorities to revoke the accreditations of Russian reporters at the Ukrainian agencies of state power, the Russian ambassador to the OSCE, Andrey Kelin said.
"I haven’t seen any reaction on her part to this so far," he said.
On Tuesday, a resolution on canceling the accreditations of Russian reporters at the agencies of state power was signed by Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada. The Rada deputies voted to cancel the reporters’ accreditations on February 12 by 239 votes versus the 226 that are needed to endorse a decision.
The Ukrainian Security Service SBU is now expected to determine a list of the Russian media that will be deprived of accreditations until the end of the armed operation Kiev is conducting in the south-eastern regions of the country.
Deputies of Russia’s State Duma said in response to the Rada motion that it contravened all the imaginable principles of international law as regards the rights and freedoms of the press and they proposed Dunja Mijatovic to give an appropriate assessment to it.
"We hope she will give an appropriate assessment to the Rada decision, which runs counter to the international norms stipulating freedom and independence of the mass media," deputy Irina Yarovaya, the chairperson of the Duma committee for security and counteraction to corruption said.
