New York, May 17, 2017--Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko should immediately reverse his order obstructing at least 19 Russian media companies, four popular Russian websites, and banning at least 13 journalists from entering the country for a year, the Committee to Protect Journalists said today. The decree, published on the Ukrainian presidency's website on May 15, would restrict the broadcasters' and websites' access to telecommunications services for three years and freezes their assets in Ukraine.
