  •  Russian occupation’s War Against Journalists in (9+ / 0-)

    From the international organization Reporters Without Borders
    Crimea.

    From the international organization Reporters Without Borders:

    Since Russian occupation began in Crimea on February 27, 2014, 63 cases of violation of freedom of speech have occurred during which 67 journalists were injured or otherwise harmed. Local self-proclaimed government has declared war against journalists.

    At least 6 journalists were not allowed by the Russian troops to enter the peninsula. Two of them – Tyzhden photojournalist Olena Maksymenko and Glavkom journalist Oles Kromplias – were abducted and held captive for two days.

    24 journalists have experienced physical assault: they were beaten, their equipment stolen and destroyed, they were ransacked, robbed of data storage devices and blocked.
