ATR said he was ready to take on the job fired for a conflict with the supporter of Poroshenko journalist ZIK

ATR supported the ZIK journalist Konstantin Lokhvitsa, who was fired after a conflict with a supporter of the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko on the «March of the undefeated» in Kiev, which was held on August 24.

The corresponding statement on the page in Facebook published genprodyuser ATR Kristina Bondarenko. She noted that the leadership of the ATR considers the behavior of Lokhvitsa justified, given the «atmosphere and theme of the event».

«ATR believes that the behavior of the ZIK correspondent Konstantin lokhvitskiy not violate the principles of journalism and journalistic ethics. Moreover, in our opinion, it does not deserve dismissal. Lokhvitskiy was a war and was wounded during the fighting near Ilovaysk. Made broadcast statements during the «Procession of the unconquered» did not carry provocative or offensive,» – said Bondarenko.

She stressed that in a country at war, where only according to official figures, killed at least 10 thousand of the Ukrainians, «such behavior may be justified, considering the atmosphere and theme of the event».

«Constantine, please get in touch with us! We will be glad to see him in our team», – stated in the ATR.
