"I express serious concern about this morning's raid on Russian media offices in Kyiv, the arrest of journalists, and the search of journalists' homes".

New York, May 15, 2018-The Committee to Protect Journalists today expressed concern over the Ukraine Security Service's (SBU) search of the Kiev office of the Russian state news agency RIA Novosti and detention of the office director, Kirill Vyshynsky. "It is something that includes global human rights law", Nauert added.

At the same time the searches took place in four other sites linked to RIA Novosti Ukraine, particularly in an apartment of Ludmila Lysenko, a Ukraine-based correspondent of the RIA Novosti news agency. The news agency's website is not being updated. The staff of the Kyiv office are mostly citizens of Ukraine who have also acquired Russian citizenship.

However, OSCE and CPJ disagreed with the narrative from Kiev and the State Department, calling on Ukrainian authorities to stop their witch hunt against Russian journalists.

He reminded Kiev that under Helsinki Final Act, the OSCE members are obliged to provide safe conditions for journalists to operate in the country.

The Ukrainian prosecutor general's spokesperson Larisa Sargan said that the prosecution would insist Vyshinsky be arrested.

"I completely agree with the fact that the worldwide community should finally provide an adequate reaction to the long-standing policy of oppressing Russian-language media in Ukraine".

The law enforcement actions on May 15 drew a swift and angry response from Russian Federation, with President Vladimir Putin's spokesman saying journalist Kirill Vyshinky's detention was "disgraceful and scandalous" if it was related to his work.

"Kiev authorities have any respect for the global media whose position does not suit Kiev", spokesperson Maria Zakharova said in a statement.

Ukrainian safety company SBU stated in a press release that it's investigating "a community of media retailers" managed by the Russian authorities that are "used as instruments in a hybrid warfare towards Ukraine".

"We believe that this forbearance directly threatens the future of the common European space because it is promoting the suppression of dissent in the worst totalitarian traditions".
