Over the past three months, 300 groups of journalists have worked in the area of operations of the Joint Forces Operation “South” – Southern Defense Forces
The Joint Coordination Press Center of the Southern Defense Forces reported that over the past three months, 300 groups of different journalists covering the Russian-Ukrainian war have worked in their area. It is Odesa, Mykolaiv, Kirovohrad, Kherson, and part of Dnipro regions.
This was stated by Natalia Humeniuk, head of the Joint Coordination Press Center of the Southern Defense Forces of Ukraine, at a briefing at the Ukraine-Odesa Media Center.
“Our task is to work to fulfill the conditions of the combat operation. It is up to the command to decide how appropriate it is in terms of coverage. At the final conference, the President reminded us that the media’s keen interest in the counteroffensive did not contribute much to the operation itself. Therefore, open access for journalists is a very conditional sector that can be perceived in combat work. We are as open as possible in the conditions we are in now. Over 300 journalist groups have worked with us over the past three months,” said Natalia Humeniuk.
The spokeswoman noted that journalists’ access to the front continues amid the complicated fighting that continues in southern Ukraine.
“We satisfy the requests we receive in the conditions we have. If it is not possible to do what journalists want, we always offer an alternative. I understand that the press always wants to get to the left bank of the Dnipro. We want to do the same. But we need to trust the work to professionals,” summarized the head of the Joint Coordination Press Center.
