Russia has lodged a note with the US Department of State to protest the migration of Ukraine’s Myrotvorets (Peacemaker) website, which discloses journalists’ personal information, to US servers. There has been no reply from the US to this day, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told the media on Thursday.
“We have dispatched a note to the US Department of State with a description of the Myrotvorets portal. Also, we demanded it should be denied hosting services, because the operation of this so-called peacekeeping resource has harmed many journalists already,” she said. “So far there has been no formal reply to our message. We keep this theme in focus.”
“Feel the difference: close spying on any step Russian mass media may take and the information they spread, the maximum efforts to create a climate of intolerance towards Russian mass media, on the one hand, and utter indifference towards a website whose activity runs counter to all rules of corporate ethnics, on the other,” she said.
Zakharova added that the Myrotvorets website undermined the status of journalists which was “so carefully protected by the entire international community” and endangered their security.
