VIENNA, April 16 /TASS/. Dunja Mijatovic, the OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media, resolutely condemned the murder of Ukrainian journalist Oles Buzina in Kiev on Thursday.
She described it as a horrifying act and a fresh reminder of dangers which journalists encounter while performing their line of duty.
The competent bodies should start an immediate and thorough investigation, Mijatovic stressed.
Well-known Ukrainian journalist and writer Oles Buzina was killed near his home in Kiev at midday on Thursday, ambulance doctors told TASS.
Ukraine’s Interior Ministry adviser Anton Gerashchenko confirmed Buzina’s murder. He wrote on his page in Facebook that Buzina had been shot dead from a dark blue Ford Focus with foreign number plates.
Oles Buzina is a well-known Ukrainian journalist, writer and TV presenter. He is the author of two books, including "Vampire Taras Shevchenko" and "The Union of Plough and Trident". Buzina used to be the editor-in-chief of the Segodnya newspaper who had to quit his post because of censorship in March this year.
