Russian Union of Journalists (RUJ) statement on detentions of Russian journalists in Ukraine

RUJ expresses its deep concern about latest facts of Russian correspondents detention by Ukranian military and security forces.  We understand that in this situation it is practically impossible to formulate general rules for the accreditation of journalists, recognized by both parties to the conflict, as well as the fact that the political position of media and personal biases impose inevitable mark on tone of publications. At the same time we are convinced that is totally unacceptable to distort the facts, to conceal them, to use hate speech and offensive wording. It is completely inacceptable to turn journalistic publication in weapons of information warfare and propaganda. Similarly, for us it is clear that the journalist violated the existing laws of the host country should clearly understand their responsibility.

Thus, we nevertheless insist that every case of detention of the journalist, he or she should have the legal protection and immediate connection to Russian consulate. The claims and blames on our detained colleagues should be announced publicly and always supported by evidences.
 
In accordance with the signed Vienna agreements under the OSCE supervision, we would like our Ukrainian colleagues, the professional unions, to immediately inform RUJ  about their position in each incident and to possibly stimulate its resolution. Of course, we are ready to do the same in the case of violations of the rights of Ukrainian journalists in Russia. 

Journalists should not be held hostages of the politics. The goodwill actions towards them should not be considered as a sign of weakness. 

We call for the victory of common sense and goodwill.

RUJ Secretariat

Russian Union of Journalists Statement on situation and events in Ukraine

Russian Union of Journalists (RUJ) expresses its solidarity with journalists in Ukraine and supports the demand of the National Union of Journalists of Ukraine (NUJU) and the All-Ukraine Trade Union "Independent Media Trade Union of Ukraine" to immediately find and punish all those involved in violence against journalists in Kyiv and other cities of the country in recent weeks. Violations of the rights of media workers were uneventful. One journalist was killed, 167 our colleagues were injured, dozens of them were subjected to all sorts of attacks. Neither press cards, nor any other signs of their professional duty could save them from brutal attacks and destruction of their professional equipment.

These days journalists from many countries were beaten and attacked. It is very important that our Ukrainian colleagues immediately acted to protect them, regardless of their nationality and political position. These actions, in particular, the statement of the Ukrainian professional organizations following beating of Russian correspondent in Kiev, were the acts of genuine solidarity.

We are sure that organizers of the massacre of journalists and all other forms of violence against them will be punished, and the names of those responsible will be published. We also believe that our professional solidarity and respect for the profession will help us to prevent violations of the rights of journalists and protect media workers regardless of their nationality, language, and the media they represent.
