Given the ongoing occupation and Putin’s crackdown on the free press, there is hardly any free professional journalism left in Crimea today, Mustafa Jemilev, Leader of the Crimean Tatar people and Ukrainian President’s Advisor on Crimean Tatar Affairs, wrote on his Facebook page.
Jemilev congratulated pro-Ukrainian medias on the Journalist Day, paying his special respects to those of them providing news coverage in extremely difficult conditions, such as in Donbass and temporarily occupied Crimea.
“There is barely any free professional journalism left in Crimea today, with the hardest hit being Crimean Tatar and Ukrainian media outlets. In view of this, I am urging everyone to show their support for media outlets working under intense pressure of the occupation authorities,” wrote Jemilev.
According to Jemilev, telling the truth, however difficult it maybe in the ongoing information war, will ultimately lead Ukraine to victory.
