What representatives of “Citizen”, “Cyprus Mail” and “Cyprus Times”, which the Russian government included in the list of 81 media access to the territory of the Russian Federation is prohibited.

We tried and are trying to do our work as objectively as possible, the Director of the “Citizen” Group, Dionysis Dionysiou, told KYPE, when asked to comment on the decision of the Russian Foreign Ministry to include “Citizen” among the European media to which access is prohibited from the Russian Federation,.

If that is not enough for Moscow, he added, it is the right of the Russian Government to impose penalties. “We will continue to do our work purely journalistically and ethically,” he said.

I do not know if there are any Cypriot publications that are in favor of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, so I cannot understand the reason for this ban, the Chief Operating Officer – CEO of Cyprus Mail, Michalis Iakovides, also told KYPE.

< p>He explained that the main source of the English-language newspaper is the Reuters agency, as they do not have a correspondent in Russia, and he does not know if there was any comment or news from the international agency that disturbed him. “We will continue to do our work, as we have been doing it until today,” he said. He noted that there is an audience reading the Cyprus Mail from Russia, according to the data they have.

We are monitoring the matter, we believe that there is no clear reason to justify the inclusion of the Cyprus Times in this list , the Editor-in-Chief, Myria Avraamidou, told KYPE. “Certainly objective information has always been our priority at Cyprus Times and the entire MC Media group,” he said.
