MOSCOW, February 26. /TASS/. The detention of Moscow journalists caused Moscow to bring up in the OSCE the issue of "information cleansing" in Ukraine, Russia’s permanent representative to OSCE Andrey Kelin said on Thursday.
The diplomat warned of "media scene cleansing in Ukraine."
"This contradicts the OSCE obligations," Kelin said adding that it was a violation of human rights.
"We will keep flagging it and demand measures to be taken," he said.
NTV correspondent Andrey Grigoriev and Channel 1 correspondent Yelena Makarova were detained in downtown Kiev on February 25 while filming a street procession by the ultra-nationalist organization Right Sector, which is outlawed in Russia as extremist. Both journalists presented all required IDs and documents allowing them to carry out professional activity in Ukraine, but the Ukrainian Security Service kept them in detention for several hours.
Later in the day both were expelled from Ukraine and prohibited from entering the country for a period of five years. Russia’s investigative committee has opened a criminal case over the illegal detention of Russian journalists.
