Immortal about the situation with the ZIK: the State capitulated in the protection of journalists and all citizens in General

The siege of the TV channel ZIK need to be considered from the point of view of the functions of the Ukrainian state security. This opinion was expressed by ex-Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine, former people’s Deputy Roman Bezsmertnyi in Facebook.

«The state capitulated in the protection of journalists. Yes, and all citizens in General,… the example of the ZIK channel very clearly how the state is eliminated from this important duty. It can no longer guarantee the safety of any journalists or any other citizens,» he said.

Former Vice Prime Minister noted that the withdrawal of protection of the National guard from the channel is a «disastrous example» of how the state applies to the execution of its core functions.

«The government retreated on the issue of safety of journalists as citizens of the state, the media as a key source of information civil society. It can not provide democracy through information. And then we start to slide in the rankings of countries on freedom of expression, will form the appropriate attitude outside,» he warned.

Besmertny called the situation with the channel ZIK «very dangerous signal for Ukraine.»

«The trouble is that such disengagement of the state from performing their tasks, but also much to provoke internal conflict. May be a million such cases, when some citizens for something, and the other against. And the state, as it turns out, in the middle of no. So, dear people in government offices, you either follow its function, or don’t stay make trouble even more,» he concluded.
