Russia has implemented none of the undertakings it gave during the 2013 review. As a result, the level of press freedom in Russia has fallen to a level not seen since the Soviet Union’s collapse in 1991.“It is time to end the downward spiral of freedoms in Russia,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “This Universal Periodic Review must be used to press Russia to overhaul all laws that unduly restrict press freedom, stop harassing independent media and the Internet, immediately free imprisoned journalists and bloggers and end impunity for violence against journalists.”The harassment of journalists has intensified in tandem with a growing atmosphere of hate and paranoia fuelled by the war in Ukraine and by Russia’s increasing isolation. The state-controlled national TV channels project a new patriotic, neo-conservative discourse deliberately infused with conspiracy theory. Independent media that continue remarkably to do their job are confined to an ever-narrower niche. As soon as they manage to reach a significant public, they are quickly curbed, as shown when the editors were fired at Lenta.ru and RBC, and cable TV operators dropped Dozhd TV. Chechnya and Crimea, which was annexed in 2014, have become media no-go zones where, with the Kremlin’s blessing, no pluralism survives.As described in RSF’s submission, the many draconian laws adopted since 2012 have reduced the space for free speech, criminalized civil society, undermined the economic bases of independent media outlets and reined in the Internet. More and more people are being jailed for comments they post on online social networks or even just for “likes.” Regardless of the massive collateral damage, Moscow is persisting in its blocking of the encrypted messaging app Telegram.According to RSF’s tally, at least seven journalists and bloggers are currently detained in Russia in connection with their reporting, more than at any time since 1991. They include the investigative reporter Alexander Sokolov, the Kaliningrad newspaper editor Igor Rudnikov and the Chechnya-based correspondent Zhalaudi Geriyev.Those who physically attack or murder journalists almost always go unpunished. At least 34 media professionals have been killed in connection with their reporting in Russia since 2000. In most cases, the investigations drew a blank and the instigators were never identified. Recent cases include investigative reporter Nikolai Andrushchenko’s murder in April 2017 and an attack on a group of journalists and human rights defenders travelling together in Ingushetia in March 2016.Read RSF’s contributionRussia is ranked 148th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.

Paul O’Connell and JP McManus pictured with Stumbles the Clown, Miss Peggy and Mr. Gusto at The People’s Park as part of Team Limerick Clean Up 4, which took place around the county on Good Friday. A record 18,500 volunteers took park in the fourth edition of Ireland’s largest one-day clean up, across hundreds of locations in Limerick. Picture: Alan PlaceCOUNCILLORS described littering across the city and county as a “slap in the face” to the 10,000 people that participated in the hugely successful Team Limerick Clean-Up this year.Fifty-three litter louts were prosecuted by Limerick City and County Council in 2017. Eleven of these were in the Adare-Rathkeale Municipal District, with 25 prosecutions currently in progress this year.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Fine Gael councillor Adam Teskey believes there should be jail sentences for offenders and suggested CCTV cameras could help solve the issue.“You can buy a camera for €300 on eBay and put it up in a tree,” he suggested.It was explained to him that you could not put CCTV cameras everywhere, and that offenders simply move to a new location once cameras are put in place.Independent councillor Richard O’Donoghue felt that every householder should be held accountable to show where there refuse is going.Mayor Stephen Keary praised the work done by the JP McManus Great Limerick Clean-Up in the last four years but felt there needed to be a change in legislation to see tougher measures enforced.“The day after the Great Limerick Clean-Up on Easter Saturday the hooligans are back to the takeaway and the supermarket. It is despairing stuff,” he added.Fianna Fail councillor Kevin Sheahan also felt that littering was a serious issue and proposed that the council look into purchasing up to a dozen machines for recycling trays of cans.“We are being critical of the public’s behaviour. Ocean’s are being destroyed by plastics and whole families of whales are being killed,” he declared.by Tom [email protected] 2021 JP McManus Pro-Am postponed for one year Print Limerick Post Show | April 10, 2020 Cheltenham Day 2 belongs to JP McManus with Four victorieslast_img read more
