Joint Statement by Foreign Minister of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba and Minister of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine Oleksandr Tkachenko on Repressions against Journalists in Belarus
21 February 2021 10:57

Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba together with Minister of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine Oleksandr Tkachenko express their concern with the latest events in Belarus, where authorities continue pressure and persecution of journalists. 

The entire democratic world recognizes mass media as fourth estate and does not interfere with their professional activities. Attacks on the freedom of speech, endangering lives and well-being of journalists in Bealrus constitute outright violations of these basic principles. 

Ukraine unequivocally stands by defending democracy and media freedom and condemns, together with the international community, attacks of Belarussian authorities on representatives of the media.

Ministers express their particular concern with destructive actions of Russia which fully usurped the information space of Belarus using its army of propagandists, thus depriving Belarussians of their right to freely access various sources of information.
