Ukraine’s Ambassador responded to the request of the German foreign Ministry to close the site “Peacemaker”
MOSCOW, November 23 — RIA Novosti. Ambassador of Ukraine to Germany Andrew Miller, commenting on the request of the German foreign Ministry to close the portal “Peacemaker” in his article for the newspaper Die Welt said that Kiev is not responsible for this website, which has “private” in origin.
Earlier German foreign Ministry condemned the inclusion of the former German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder at the base of the Ukrainian website “Peacemaker”. Schroeder was in the “black list” for “violation of the sovereignty of Ukraine” and “anti-Ukrainian propaganda.”
The diplomat noted that in this case “raised the issue of freedom of speech,” and that because of this “legal freedom of action of the Ukrainian authorities is limited.”
Thus, according to Miller, the inclusion of former German Chancellor in a “list of enemies of Ukraine” due to its words about the inevitability of the recognition by the international community for the reunification of the Crimea with Russia.
“However, Ukraine is ready to continue negotiations on the issue of “Peacemaker” with German partners. Personally, I believe that the infamous list was inappropriate,” — said the Ambassador.
Site “Peacemaker” is known for scandalous publications in which to publish data journalists, militiamen of the breakaway DND and LNR and other citizens whom he called “traitors”.
In the spring of 2016 “Peacemaker” has published lists of journalists, including foreign ones, which have been accredited by the self-proclaimed DND and LNR, with their contact details, and then address some of them received threats.
