Russia Is Still Dangerous for Journalists

Russia took ninth place in an annual rating of most dangerous countries for jornalists, according to the International Committee to Protect Journalists.

      Altogether, there are 12 countries in the list ranged in concordance with an Impunity Index. That global index calculates unsolved journalist murders as a percentage of each country's population. The murder is considered undetected if there are no any guilty verdicts on it.

      The index covers the journalist murders commited over years 2003-12. Countries with less than five people killed for their professional journalist activity are not included in the list.

      The first three places in the rating are occupied by Iraq (2.818 unsolved journalist murders per million inhabitants), Somalia (2.396 unsolved journalist murders per million inhabitants) and Philippines (0.580 unsolved journalist murders per million inhabitants). In absolute terms there are 93, 23 and 55 unsolved journalist murders registered in these countries respectively.

      Russia is on the ninth place (the same as it was last year) with an Impunity Index Rating at 0.099 unsolved journalist murders per million inhabitants, or 14 journalist murders for 141,9 million inhabitants.

      Russia is one step lower than Pakistan with 23 murders (Index at 0.130) and one step higher than Brazil with 9 murders (Index at 0.046).

      Up to that time, on May 1, the Freedom House Organization also published it report about freedom of the press in different countries. According to the rating, Russia fell from 172nd to 176th place and is also included to the number of countries with not free media.

      According to the authors of the research, most TV, radio and press in Russia are under almost total control of the government, with a rare exception of some opposition radio and Internet media.
