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.

first_imgWEST WILDWOOD01 WEST CAPE MAY11 WILDWOOD CREST18 NORTH WILDWOOD34 617 72 As cases continue to rise, prevention remains the best protection against COVID-19. Protect yourself and your families, even your family pets, according to a county press release.“At this time, it is rare for animals to contract COVID-19, but there have been a few cases in the United States. There is no recommendation currently for routine testing in animals,” Cape May County Health Officer Kevin Thomas said.He continued, “Public health officials are still learning about the virus, but there is no evidence that pets play a role in spreading the virus in the United States. However, since animals can spread other diseases to people, it is always a good idea to wash your hands after being around animals.”In rare situations, animals can become infected with the virus that causes COVID-19, and they may experience mild signs of illness, according to the release.Call your veterinarian with any concerns about your pet’s health. The veterinarian will determine if they need to see your pet. Let them know if anyone in the household has signs of COVID-19 before visiting the animal hospital.Until more is known about COVID-19, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends the following:Do not let pets interact with people or other animals outside the household.Keep cats indoors, when possible, to prevent them from interacting with other animals or people.Walk dogs on a leash, maintaining at least 6 feet from other people and animals.Avoid dog parks or public places where a large number of people and dogs gather.People who are sick should restrict contact with pets and other animals.Limit contact with animals until more information is known about the virus. When possible, have another member of your household care for your animals while you are sick.If you must care for your pet or be around animals while you are sick, wash your hands before and after you interact with pets and wear a face mask.Stay up to date on the current situation as it evolves.
