In the corresponding section of the “Peacemaker” posted the names of correspondents, publications, where they work, their position, country of origin, number of cell phones, email addresses and dates of stay on the territory uncontrolled by the government of Ukraine.

As if apologizing for “blowing out” members of the media, “the Peacemaker” indicates: a list of de accredited journalists drawn up by the same members of “illegal armed formations”.

Telling your subscribers about the hacking of the information system of the DNR and LNR, MP from the faction “people’s front” Anton Gerashchenko mentioned about downloading 7 terabytes “of internal documents of the banana republics”. Say, all obtained by hackers information placed at the disposal of the security Service of Ukraine, Ministry of internal Affairs and other competent authorities of the state.

Gerashchenko, who never concealed his own involvement in the creation of this resource, has promised to publish personal data accredited in Donetsk journalists back on may 10. “Thank you guys for everything you have done and will do!”, – heartfelt completes Anton Yurievich your post.

Last year on the site “Peacemaker” personal data ex-the Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Oleg Kalashnikov and journalist Olesya Elderberry. “The patriot resource,” was charged with both “promoting their materials separatism and foreign aggression in Ukraine”. Soon both of the inhabitant of Kiev were shot: Kalashnikov – at the front door to his own apartment, the Elder – in the yard of the house where he lived for many years.

Ukrainian human rights activists and the Ombudsman for human rights of the Verkhovna Rada Valeria Lutkovska has repeatedly criticized the site for unlawful interference with the human right to privacy.

“Useful initiative” member of the Parliament in the sharp form has commented the head of the information Centre for human rights Tatyana, Peconic: “Anton Gerashchenko and the company’s gone completely nuts. This is necessary so skillfully to erase the line between patriotism and idiocy… the Embroidery of the brain “cross-stitch” and “stitch”.

Just on the website “Gromadska TV” an appeal to Ukrainian and foreign journalists, representatives of Ukrainian and international media organizations, deeply shocked by the actions of Ukrainian politicians and employees of the site “Peacemaker”.

“Came under attack of Ukrainian and foreign journalists, who risked his life objectively covered the event and spoke in Ukrainian and world media, what happened in the occupied territories, the document says. We especially emphasize that accreditation does not mean and never meant the cooperation of journalists from any side of the conflict. Accreditation is a form of protection and safety of journalist.”

After accusations of “working for the terrorists” and releasing individual data, phone numbers, and email addresses of journalists they began to call and write with threatening letters. Some Ukrainian politicians have been calls to consider the journalists as “enemies of Ukraine” and generally deny them the opportunity to work.

“Such an attitude toward journalists is a direct violation of the Ukrainian Constitution, the Law of Ukraine “On protection of personal data, violation of the European Convention on human rights, and is a shameful and totally unacceptable in a civilized and not a totalitarian state, which is Ukraine”, – convinced the authors of the appeal.

The authors of the appeal demand from senior leaders and officials of law enforcement agencies of Ukraine to initiate a criminal case on the fact of violation of the law of Ukraine on protection of personal data, exerting pressure and threats specified in the list of reporters.
