The OSCE called upon by the Ukrainian authorities to investigate the attack on the Inter TV channel, which took place on May 9.
Harlem Desir, the OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media, wrote on Twitter about it.
“I condemn yesterday's attempt at arson on the Inter TV channel in Kiev. The damage and injuries were prevented by the rapid actions of the police. Violence is always unacceptable. I call on the Ukrainian authorities to investigate the attack and guarantee a secure environment for the work of journalists,” – the message of the OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media said.
Earlier, the Inter TV channel launched an advertisement for the concert on the Victory Day, in which the anchorman had stated that “the streets are named by the names of fascist collaborators” in Ukraine.
In response, a number of organizations expressed a desire to protest under the building of the channel with the demand to cancel the broadcast of the concert.
By the way, similar actions under the building of “Inter” are held not for the first time.
