Statement by the Spokesperson on the sentencing of Pavlo Hryb


The European Union is closely following the issue of many journalists and correspondents from Turkey and EU Member States who are still waiting for their accreditation requests to be processed by the Turkish authorities. In this context, we are concerned about recent decisions by the Turkish authorities not to renew the accreditation for three German journalists (Istanbul Bureau Chief of public broadcaster ZDF, Jörg Brase, Tagesspiegel correspondent Thomas Seibert, Halil Gülbeyaz of public broadcaster NDR).

Five years on from the illegal annexation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol by the Russian Federation, the European Union remains steadfast in its commitment to Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity.

The European Union Delegation to the Council of Europe issues the following statement in agreement with the EU Heads of Mission to the Council of Europe.

Les deux premiers mois de 2019 étant presque derrière nous, notre équipe de presse et d'information est en pleine préparation pour une période riche en événements. C'est le moment parfait, avons-nous jugé, pour céder les rênes de la communication à notre Chargée de mission politique stagiaire Malina pour qu'elle vous présente les faits saillants selon elle de la dernière année et ce qui l'enthousiasme pour 2019.

With the first two months of 2019 almost behind us, our press and information team is in the middle of preparations for an eventful time ahead. No time like this to hand over the communication reins to our political trainee Malina to reflect some important highlights of the past year and what she is excited about in 2019.

The EU expresses its deep concern following reports by the Russia LGBTI network, regarding the detainment, torture and killings of people in the Chechen Republic of the Russian Federation, based on their actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity.
