12.04.2016. The “right to utmost truth disease” contradicts open society, International Renaissance Foundation
Comment by the International Renaissance Foundation
The investigation, performed by journalists of the “Slidstvo.Info” program of the Hromadske.TV in partnership with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) and the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) has disclosed an obvious fact of the existence of an off-shore company whose beneficiary is the President of Ukraine. This fact should receive its just appraisal.
At the same time, the proposed interpretation of the disclosed findings has caused reasoned criticism by experts, recognized journalists, and representatives of leading NGOs, which, like the Hromadske.TV, have had long-standing and productive cooperation with the Foundation in defending the freedom of speech in Ukraine.
