Spokesperson of the Secretary General: Council of Europe Platform for the Protection of Journalists registers alert on Ukraine - RIA Novosti Journalist Kyrylo Vyshynsky Held on Treason Allegations in Ukraine

The Council of Europe Platform for the Protection of Journalists has today published an alert by its partner organisations European Federation of Journalists and International Federation of Journalists on the detention of RIA Novosti journalist Kyrylo Vyshynsky on treason allegations in Ukraine. His arrest came hours before raids by Ukrainian security service (SBU) at the news agency’s offices.

The Council of Europe is concerned about the implications that repeated detentions of journalists may have for the situation with media freedom in Ukraine. We follow the situation closely.
