Dunya Miyatovic concerned by violence against journalists in Ukraine

 December 2013 - OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media Dunja  Mijatovic today expressed her concern by the magnitude of violence against members of the media at the demonstrations in Kyiv. 

"I am especially concerned that in most of the cases, the beatings were reportedly conducted by the law enforcement officers who attacked the  journalists and disregarded their press identification. Violence against  journalists cannot be tolerated", Mijatovic wrote in a letter to OSCE  Chairperson-in-Office, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Leonid Kozhara.

Mijatovic reiterated the call to the Ukrainian authorities to take urgent  action to halt the violence against media and to swiftly launch investigation  into these attacks.

According to information available to the Representative's office more  than 40 journalists representing national and international media outlets,  including Ukrainskaya Pravda, 5 Kanal, 1+1, Euronews, Reuters, Agence  France-Presse, The Associated Press, The New York Times, were physically  assaulted and severely injured while covering the public protests in Kyiv.-a2-
