The press secretary of the UN Secretary-General, Stephane Dujarric, recalled the freedom of the press after the threats of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky against journalists from Russia. His words are listed on the UN website.
«Freedom of the Press— it's freedom of the press. And for us, this applies to the whole world, universally— in all 193 Member States. And these principles remain unchanged, — Dujarric pointed out.
The day before, President Zelensky promised to “punish” Russian journalists for propaganda. “I want to say separately about the responsibility of those Russian propagandists who lie about this terror, who are trying to justify the actions of the Russian army. Each of you will also be punished,— he said.
In turn, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova called on the Ukrainian leader to stop “intimidating” people who work in the media. According to her, such gestures demonstrate “a new facet of lawlessness and misanthropy.”
After the start of the Russian special operation in Ukraine, Kyiv imposed sanctions against several Ukrainian TV channels “to counter foreign propaganda.” In particular, the 112, NewsOne and ZiK TV channels were switched off from broadcasting.
