In terms of freedom Ukraine is on 126 place - between Algeria and Honduras. This is stated in the annual report of the international organization Reporters Without Borders.

Ukraine showed the worst performance on media freedom in the country since the 2004 Orange Revolution. Attacks on journalists were higher than in previous years, but the perpetrators were not punished. This promotes an unhealthy atmosphere only because increases vulnerability to pressure independent media, which increases - referred to in the report Reporters Without Borders.

Last year, almost three times the number of attacks on journalists and officially recorded facts of political censorship. For example, when journalists national news agency UNIAN openly declared that the parliamentary elections were forbidden to use the name of President Yanukovych in a negative context.

"There was total impunity. It was broken only six cases of attacks on journalists - this is the largest number in all the years of Ukraine's independence, "- said the representative of VOA Reporters Without Borders in Ukraine Oksana Romaniuk:

"In Ukraine there is no political will to freedom of speech. It is clear why this is, because voters who do not have the information - it is easier to manage than those who are aware and ask questions. "

Also changed the editorial policy of many media, which were often skip Jeans - advertising material submitted as impartial. This central role played by the owners in some way associated with the government, according to media experts, such as media avoided any criticism close to the party president.

"In journalistic material under criticism, skepticism, irony, against the authorities. The situation is such that even young journalists who just come to work, just know - makes the material against the government can not "- said the Voice of America chairman Alexander Chekmishev equality of opportunity. "It affects the quality of Ukrainian journalism that a potential is very high."

The past year has demonstrated two major trends Ukrainian media environment. On the one hand, there was a substantial increase in political jeans and ordered materials, as evidenced Research Fund "Democratic Initiatives". Experts attribute this to the parliamentary elections. There are fewer media willing to financially support high-quality materials and journalistic investigation.

At the same time Romaniuk indicates that the journalist community has become more united. For example, when 13 print media out of the white-column in protest against the law of libel, and began mass protests against journalists of the bill. On the deterioration of freedom of speech in the country indicated by the fact that first opened protests against censorship in the regions.
Also changed the editorial policy of many media, which were often skip Jeans - advertising material submitted as impartial. This central role played by the owners in some way associated with the government, according to media experts, such as media avoided any criticism close to the party president.

"Regional journalists who participated in those protests, aware that they may lose their jobs and find employment in the region is much more difficult than in Kiev, but people still openly declared pressure. Thus, in 2012, increased consolidation of the journalistic community "- said Romaniuk.

But Chekmishev like that is a big part of journalists and executives who are resigned to the situation that you can not criticize the government and operate on this principle.

Another revealing trend last year was how the channels that belong to businesses, depending on their personal interests changed the angle of feed materials. Thus, the Inter TV channel began doing much more balanced material after the channel owner Khoroshkovskiy resigned as deputy prime minister, say media experts.

"Rating press freedom Reporters Without Borders reflects a number of other settings that affect how journalists can work freely and whether the government is ready for dialogue," - said Chekmishev. One indicator of this would be that last year there were only briefings and no press conference president.
