Letters from Kiev
Friday, July 29, 2005
This week, Ukraine's President Victor Yushchenko chewed out a reporter for asking questions about his son's incongruously lavish lifestyle. In response, some 200 Ukrainian journalists signed a strongly-worded letter protesting the reporter's treatment. And Yushchenko responded with a letter of his own. A sign of tough times ahead for journalism in the nascent democracy? Or an indication that Ukraine's free press is alive and well?
