Journalists under attack in Ukraine

According to the CPJ

Officials first barred reporters from entering their offices in the Odessa Television and Radio Center and then cut the power supply to their newsrooms and transmitter, silencing 12 independent broadcasters, Natalya Perevalova, chief editor of the Odessa-based independent television channel ATV, told CPJ.

A move that Perevalova says follows

critical reporting on corruption in the city administration and its poor financial policies have prompted official retaliation ahead of the 2010 mayoral and presidential elections.
