Baku/08.06.21/Turan: The Justice for Journalists Foundation (JFJ) and its partners in monitoring attacks on media workers in the post-Soviet space call on international organizations and governments of all countries to make every effort to release all arrested journalists as soon as possible and to  stop the barbaric violationsn of their  rights in the conclusion. According to the Foundation's experts, at least 84 media workers from Azerbaijan, Belarus, Crimea, Russia, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan are awaiting trial in places of detention or under house arrest, or have already been sentenced to long-term imprisonment and are being held in camps and prisons. ...

Such actions of states are undemocratic and violate at once two fundamental human freedoms - the right to freedom (article 3 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights) and the right to just and favorable working conditions (article 23 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights).

According to the Belarusian Association of Journalists, 33 media workers are currently in prison in the country. At least 42 Russian and Crimean professional and civil journalists have been deprived of their liberty on the territory of Russia and Crimea. All these journalists, as well as nine arrested media workers in Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan, ended up in captivity only for fulfilling their professional duties - objectively and independently informing the public about what was happening.

Full information on attacks on journalists, bloggers and media workers is available in the Media Risk Map, as well as in the Justice for Journalists Foundation's Incident Database.

Below is a list of detained media workers for 8 June 2021. — 0—
