To deal with the media, as do the authorities of Ukraine, the last thing, said Last news on Thursday, the people's Deputy of the European Parliament from Latvia Andrey Mamykin.
The Ukrainian leader on Wednesday signed a decree on the introduction of personal sanctions concerning the Inhabitants of foreign countries responsible for the implementation of the illegal activities against Ukraine. With respect to all included in the " black list ", a ban on entry into this country. The sanctions list has incorporated 388 physical And 105 legal entities, including citizens of 23 countries, among them - four Residents of Latvia. It correspondents to the Latvian newspaper "to Conduct today" Edward Eldar, V. buchelnikov, Erica Rogalska And former people's Deputy of the Sejm Nikolay Kabanov. Of these, the real man is the only wild Boars, the rest of the collective pseudonyms edition.
"To fight against media workers is the last thing. I say this as a former journalist, who gave his beloved profession for two decades. You can disagree with the editorial policy of the channel or newspaper, you Can debate And argue with the press, in the end, each audience or reader has the right to switch to Another channel or buy another newspaper - the one that like. And decide to allow or tolerate in their own house or another person required the viewer is watching or not watching the television news. In the case of the latter the decision of the security service of Ukraine decision regarding, for example, the Latvian newspaper "to Conduct today" is utterly stupid, " said the turnip.
according to him, the Ukrainian authorities have not even checked who contribute in the " black list ".
"for example, such journalists as Edward Eldar in Latvia in nature does not happen, It is a creative name for a whole group of authors. So now it turns out that in Latvia suffered only the journalist who wrote under his real name - Nikolay Kabanov. And those who wrote them under the name "Edward Eldar" is not damaged, because they have other names. Another aspect: as in the computer of the border guards of Ukraine now will be labeled " Edward Eldar - entry ", All inhabitants of Latvia with real names Edward Eldar will not be able to come to Ukraine, even if they have no relation to the media, nothing at all about Ukraine did not write, " said the turnip.
according to his statement, a similar ban could become a serious legal problem.
"Legally innocent people do not get, for example, at the funerals of their relatives, because Some friend of the major's not like the article under which it is signed" Edward Eldar ". All This is forced to wonder at the competence of the special distinguished services in the country of Ukraine ", - said the people's Deputy of the European Parliament.
