BAJ Expresses Solidarity with Colleagues in Ukraine
We state that the situation in Ukraine is approaching the highest peak when the future of the country might be sold. Now, as never before, the Ukrainian society and the international community need information about what’s going on. Nobody will do it for journalists.
We call on the authorities of Ukraine to stop the insulting practice of using brutal force against our colleagues.
We also back the demand to review newly adopted legislation in Ukraine which significantly restricts not only civil rights, but freedom of word.
We call on journalists all over the world to support the injured and arrested colleagues in Ukraine who are at the center of events now.
No threats, bans or persecution may interfere with journalists’ professional duties.
