Information Policy Minister calls on world community to focus on cases of journalists Sushchenko, Semena
As the Minister noted, the cases of Roman Sushchenko and Mykola Semena are examples of violations of journalists' rights to the profession and freedom of speech, committed by Russia. "On this day, I call on the world community to pay attention to our political prisoners-journalists. It would be difficult to achieve their prompt release without the support of the international organizations and opinion leaders of the European states," the Ukrainian official stressed. On Wednesday, Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry also called on Russia to stop the persecution of journalists in the occupied Crimea.
