3rd of May – World Press Freedom Day

03/05/2018 10:02

The UN calls to remember the deaths journalists today and also calls for the freedom of the press, for that is precisely the way we defend the right to know the truth.

Experts point out that in the first quarter of 2018, 37 attacks on journalists were recorded in Ukraine, while in the past – 17 during this period. The European Party of Ukraine has always fought for European standards of freedom and democracy. That is why on April 28, 2018, we appealed to our colleagues from the European Parliament to adopt a resolution on the need to stop the attack on freedom of speech in Ukraine. As a result of the vote, the European Commission will monitor the state of freedom of speech in Ukraine during the presidential and parliamentary elections in order to ensure the preconditions for free citizens’ choice. And the European Party of Ukraine begins to create a list of enemies of freedom of speech in Ukraine – the list of Schuster.
