Journalists in Georgia obtained more freedom

2009-10-20 18:35

Press Freedom Index 2009 by Reporters Sans Frontiers put Georgia on the 81st position, whereas in 2008 it was in 120th - GHN.


The former USSR republics on positions above are Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, the latter on 6th position. Ukraine occupied 89th place.

The organization noted the significant increase of state into the activities of mass media. The most "repressive" ex-USSR states are Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan. The authors believe no serious changes happened there, journalists in these countries are still censored, exposed to violence.

The last places in the rating [174th and 175th ] are occupied by North Korea and Eritrea respectively.
