Deprivation Russian correspondents accreditation at the Ukrainian state authorities is absolutely crazy step, which does not improve the situation information on the fronts and certainly will not help Ukraine solve her own issues, says the head of the international Department of the Federation Council Konstantin Kosachev.
He said that back in November last year, the SBU was banned from entering Ukraine 83 Russian correspondents, and now this persecution reached officially accredited by the pool.
"As the saying goes, time Ostrovka accreditation of correspondents and authorized producers, operators, technicians) mass media of the Russian Federation with the government of Ukraine will last" until the end of the anti-terrorist operation ". That is, Almost indefinitely. Because "anti-terrorist operation" against his people can last either until the utter destruction of this people, or to change the government, " wrote the Senator in his blog on Thursday.
Proponents of the ban claim that, say, certain print and electronic publications of Russia's leading information war against Ukraine and the Ukrainian people " even within Ukraine itself. It is clear that the "information war" in Kiev now consider any opinion other than the opinion of Kiev, said Kosachev.
However, in this case the story is about the official accreditation More official media in government agencies." maybe SBU just afraid that representatives of the Ukrainian authorities in the course of contacts with the Russian press will suddenly perceive the point of view of the "enemy" that looks compliment the credibility of our correspondents and a sign of uncertainty Ukrainian special services in the ideological stability of their government, " wrote the politician. He added, it's completely crazy step, which will not improve the situation in the information "fronts" and certainly will not help Ukraine solve its own issues.
It is significant that the decision of the Ukrainian Parliament came out just at the most moment in Minsk "channel four" agreed about the world for Ukraine, drew the attention of the head of Department. However, the Council "tried" to provide extremely unfavorable background diplomatic efforts of the leaders, which in itself causes only grief." in my opinion, the mission of the parliaments not to put a spoke in the wheel, And to build bridges. Maybe the Ukrainian Parliament just wants to take away unwanted correspondents to not be ashamed of chaos today, the walls of the Council and other government agencies, and no one saw it from?", - graduated from the Senator.
