Ukrainian media called on the international community to bring to justice russian propagandists who are responsible for barbaric crimes in Ukraine as well as the direct perpetrators – the russian military and their command, reported. 

In light of the ongoing full-scale aggression of the terrorist country of the russian Federation against Ukraine, we, representatives of the Ukrainian media, call on the international community to bring to justice not only the servicemen of the russian invading army but also the so-called “journalists” who are in reality the mouthpieces of kremlin propaganda.

The responsibility for the barbaric crimes committed by the russian invaders on the territory of independent Ukraine lies not only with their direct perpetrators but also with the propagandists who fuel the spiral of hatred towards the entire Ukrainian people.

Olga Skabeeva, Vladimir Solovyov, Dmitry Kiselev, Margarita Simonyan are just the tip of the iceberg of a pack of liars and raiders pretending to be journalists. They are backed by hundreds, if not thousands, of workers of the modern Goebbels machine.

Incitement of ethnic hatred, fraud, lies, disinformation, and justification of the murders of tens of thousands of innocent people cannot be considered journalism, and the state-run russian propaganda centers will never be mass media. Every russian propagandist who has contributed to the existence of this factory of evil must be brought to justice by an international tribunal.

This year’s Congress of the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) in Oman acknowledged that “Most of the russian media incite hysteria and hatred”, and the Congress of the European Federation of Journalists (EFJ) noted that among “those responsible for fomenting war… are journalists, managers, employees of federal and local media who deliberately worked and are working to strengthen the dictatorial regime, violating all professional standards”.

We call on the international journalistic organizations and national media associations of the world to keep putting pressure on governments and international institutions to recognize all representatives of the kremlin’s deception machine guilty of the genocide of the Ukrainian people and crimes against the peace and security of mankind.

Today, the world journalistic community is facing a dramatic choice – to withstand the onslaught of propaganda and preserve the profession, and the trust of its audience, or… to allow propagandists to continue to call themselves journalists and mock journalistic standards.

Still… Light will triumph over darkness! Just as Truth will vanquish deceit!
