Meantime in Donetsk people have brought back one of the basic rights taken away by Kiev Junta, freedom to information.



The regional television and radio center in Donetsk remains under the control of unidentified assailants who have switched off the digital signal and are filling Ukrainian frequencies with Russian broadcasts, the radio and television concern KRRT told Interfax.

How are they bringing back a right, the right to inform themselves from Russian channels, by taking away another one, the right to inform themselves via Ukrainian channels ? Double standards all around...

In addition, they are also placing demands on reporters now:



They said the word "separatism" was now forbidden. Journalists had to describe armed gunmen who had taken over a string of government buildings in the east of the country as "supporters of federalisation". Anything written about this "young state" had to be cleared in advance. The news website had to publish details of a bank account for donations to the cause.

"We recommend you agree to our demands," said the group's leader, who identified himself as Dmitry Silakov.

According to this source they have only put back Russian channel Russia-24 which was removed by Junta.


The television centre in Ukraine’s southeastern city of Donetsk has started rebroadcasting of Russia’s television channel Russia-24, Ukraine’s TSN news service reported on Sunday.

Ukrainian television channels have not yet been removed from the air.

More news of journalist disappearances in Eastern Ukraine:
mediafreedomwatch.org...

In Sloviansk on Saturday, April 26th, the connection with Serhiy Shapoval, a journalist of “Volyn Post”, was lost. This was reported by Kateryna Shapoval, a sister of the reporter, who is also a journalist.

According to her, Serhiy was covering the situation in Kharkiv, thereafter he informed his friends that he went to Sloviansk. Since 3 p.m. that day he has not answered phone calls from his wife. At about 9 p.m. the connection was lost at all.

The city of Sloviansk, Donetsk region, is fully controlled by separatists, headed by workers of Russian intelligence agencies.

On the evening of April 25th, the separatists also captured Yurii Leliavskii, a journalist from Lviv and a freelance correspondent of the TV channel ZIK. Viktor Galkin, the program director of “Telekritika”, reported this on his Facebook page with reference to information from eyewitnesses of the event. The journalist was captured, while he was carrying out video footage during, and the attackers forcibly took him to the city Executive Committee. They found the journalist’s passport with Lviv registration (a city in the Western Ukraine), and this was an aggravating circumstance in the eyes of the separatists.

Unlike Russia, which would never send troops into Ukrainian territory. Your hypocrisy is its own undoing.

Producer of Russian TV show vanishes in Ukraine as ‘saboteurs posing as journalists’ detained

Producer of Russian TV show vanishes in Ukraine as ‘saboteurs posing as journalists’ detained

Published time: April 24, 2014 16:23

rt.com...

A producer for a popular program on Russia’s NTV channel has disappeared in eastern Ukraine where he came to film a report unrelated to the country’s political situation.

Belarusian citizen Stepan Chirich, a producer for the weekly program Central Television, went to the city of Pershotravinsk in the Dnepropetrovsk region to make a report about the visit of a well-known exorcist, Pastor Bob Larson, who’s there as part of his world tour.

“We lost contact with [Chirich] on Tuesday evening,” Vadim Takmenyov, the program’s host, told RT. He said that at the beginning they did not ring the alarm, but now he has been missing for over two days the channel is doing everything possible to find the producer.

Chirich has been working for the program for several years.

“We sent him to Ukraine – a producer, not a correspondent – because he is the only Central Television employee who has a Belarusian passport, using which one can cross the [Russian-Ukrainian] border without any problems and do his professional activities,” Takmenyov said.

Takmenyov underlined that political events in the crisis-torn country were completely unrelated to that particular trip.

A cameraman who was working with the missing NTV producer was a Ukrainian citizen from Lugansk, in eastern Ukraine. There is no connection with him either and his relatives as well as employees have no idea what happened to him, the NTV journalist said.

The channel says that the disappearance of the crew might be connected with reports about the detention of two suspected Russian “saboteurs” in Dnepropetrovsk region. According to Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper, two men “pretending to be journalists” were grabbed by local militia and passed over to the Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) after filming a police station and the city council in Pershotravinsk. Citing unofficial sources, the paper said the unnamed men had Belarusian passports, but equipment they used “indicated their relation to Russian intelligence.”

“We got through to the SBU. The only comment we managed to get was ‘No comment,’” Takmenyov said.

He said the channel sent to its colleagues in Ukraine documents proving that Chirich has nothing to do with any intelligence services.

“We hope [journalists in Ukraine] will report on [the incident] in one or another way, but fairly, and say that we are looking for our colleague,” the NTV journalist added in a telephone comment to RT.

Following the February coup in Kiev, Russian journalists and TV crews have repeatedly been denied entry to Ukraine on various pretexts.The new authorities also accused several Russian television channels of propaganda and ordered local cable providers to cut them off. Later, some providers – primarily in eastern Ukraine – resumed broadcast of Russian channels.

Earlier in April, the Russian upper house of parliament said in a statement that Russian journalists “are facing psychological and physical pressure in Ukraine” while the country’s online media reporting on the crisis “is being attacked by hackers.”

Last week, a journalist and a camerawoman for Russia’s LifeNews were detained and questioned for many hours by Ukraine law enforcers.

What was he doing trying to interview an exorcist in the middle of a civil war? That is the flimsiest cover for a spy since Maxwell Smart posed as a greeting card salesman.

I just hope there will not be a need for Russia to send peacekeeping forces to Ukraine and people in South East of Ukraine will decide their future without any major conflict with Kiev Junta.
Let people decide their future.

Recent events in Ukraine have indicated an increased number of people possessed with evil spirits of Nazism and Bandera's Ideology. Therefore need for exorcism have been increased dramatically and this fella wanted to make a documentary about it. Nothing out of ordinary if you ask me.

There are already Russian "peacekeeping" forces in Ukraine, remember? I agree with you that the Ukrainian people should be free to decide their future. Too bad Putin disagrees.

An interview at the rally in donetsk and wow .




But the most cynical (and least informed by actual Ukrainian experience) here will continue to characterize the Euromaidan a movement funded by the EU and CIA.

Meanwhile, real Ukrainians like Yulia are very aware of who the real fascists are.


So my Ukrainian contacts are no "real" Ukrainians??? Most of them see it 180° differently than you! They DO think that the EU and CIA was involved to a big part! I know, you have spoken to Ukrainians, too. But you can´t say from your experience that ALL Ukrainians think like that! We must accept that there are two contrary views within Ukraine´s population now!

My friends in Chernigov (100km from Kiev), who speak Ukrainian only with a Russian accent, are afraid to travel to West Ukraine! I don´t know if this is justified or not, but it just shows that even "real" Ukrainians see the Nazi elements emerging in Kiev and the west of Ukraine.

So please, acknowledge that there are different views even within the Ukrainian population! Saying that only Ukrainians who say that the EU and CIA was not involved, are "real " Ukrainians, is a bit... well... unfair to say the least!
