REPORTING OF UKRAINE BY THE BBC
STOP NEO NAZI HATE CRIME
John Cryer MP, the Chair of the Parliamentary Labour Party has joined calls for action against the far-right terror group C14 active in Kyiv, Ukraine.
In an Early Day Motion submitted to the UK Parliament he has called the BBC to account for its appalling reporting of the C14 terror group that have given legitimacy to its campaign of hate crimes.
That this House is deeply concerned by the reporting by the BBC of the Kiev-based organisation C14, a far right organisation with neo-Nazi origins; considers the reporting of C14 activities fails to uphold BBC editorial values; is further concerned that the BBC has afforded a degree of legitimacy to C14, allowing it to disguise itself as a nationalist organisation engaged in reasonable activities designed to defend Ukrainian sovereignty; believes that the BBC has failed to apply due rigour in failing to report on the known history of violence by C14, including attacks on the LGBT community, violence against ethnic minorities, journalists and trade unionists and an attack on a police officer using a grenade during Kiev Pride; expresses deep concern at reporting of C14 activities as educational conversation and petty hooliganism; and calls on the BBC to uphold the values and standards expected by licence fee payers in the reporting on Ukraine.
