    Russia Slams Violation of Media Freedoms in Ukraine

    The Russian Foreign Ministry on Tuesday expressed concern over violation of media freedoms and discrimination against journalists covering the ongoing political crisis in Ukraine.

    The ministry listed a number of instances in which it said Russian reporters had been blocked from entering Ukraine, deported from the country or faced pressure and even death threats.


    According to the ministry, some Russian media websites have been targeted by hackers supporting the recent revolution in Ukraine, while several Russian television channels have been blocked by Ukrainian cable TV providers.

    It seems the OSCE is echoing Russia's concerns. The Kiev government is going to create more problems for itself than necessary in the east and south if it keeps this up.

    This is becoming more and more concerning. If the new Ukrainian government is actually doing this this needs to be analyzed more. Media freedom is a cornerstone for any democracy. If they want to actually become more western friendly and join the EU then they need to change this and much of what is going on in Ukraine. This especially worries me with more and more extreme right wing parties gaining influence in the government.

    I think at this point, perhaps take it all with a tablespoon of salt. Before/during the invasion, Russia was saying they invaded because Russian speaking eastern Ukranians and Crimeans were being discriminated against and harassed. There's been no confirmation of any of that. This could just be more propaganda to get folks to see Ukraine in a bad light. I'll wait and compare this to what other news sources report in the next 24 hours or so.

    I agree it could be propaganda by the easterners, but then again it would suprise me if it was true with reports of Ukranians saying they are going to hang "people by their balls if they voted in a pro russian way", or something along those lines.

    Calling a fellow poster a freak is a violation of forum rules.

    Cheese and rice! Putin's Russia complaining about a lack of press freedom? This is a joke, right? I don't think I'd let him in, either. It would be like letting Joseph Goebbles into Poland in September, 1939.
