The Dniprovsky district department of the Ukrainian Interior
Ministry’s main office in Kyiv announced this in answer to a request
submitted by the interagency committee for quick response to conflicts
involving the media.
The interagency committee sent the request to the Ukrainian Interior
Ministry and the Prosecutor General’s Office in order to check all of
the circumstances of this incident as soon as the media became aware of
an incident with a Ukrainska Pravda journalist.
“We are keeping this case under control and are ready to provide
assistance to the media in ensuring the smooth fulfillment of their
professional duties,” the spokesperson for the Ukrainian president and
head of the interagency working group analyzing the observance of
legislation on freedom of speech and the protection of journalists’
rights, Daria Chepak, said.
