DW: How would you describe the current working conditions for journalists in Ukraine?
Mustafa Nayem: There are two different realities in Ukraine: in one of them, journalists exercise their right to write about and critically discuss pressing issues. That’s the Internet reality – people can write and speak openly there. But unfortunately, that medium reaches few peope. Many people, especially older people – who play a decisive role in elections, do not use the Internet as a source of information. They experience a different reality: that of television and the major media, in which journalists do not have the possibility of illuminating all sorts of topics and do not have the liberty they would like. State powers take advantage of that. Those who are loyal to state authorities or who are part of that system control the television media, which have a major impact on people.
