One of our VOA journalists faced rather blatant intimidation a few months back. He was covering the Automaidan motorcade protests that went to the then-president's lavish residence. Soon thereafter law enforcement officials "visited" his family and threatened to take his license away.

VOA has been fortunate to have good national TV partners in Ukraine that enable us to distribute our TV programming widely in Ukraine. Of course, in Crimea that is no longer possible.

Radio Svoboda correspondents were attacked in Kharkiv on May 1 by the pro-Russian activists, when they wanted to live stream the rally and burning of the Ukrainian flag. The prosecutors office today launched investigation. There have been incidents like this before, in Kharkiv, the second largest Ukrainian city, and in Crimea.

Ukrayinska Pravda is very good. Dzerkalo tyzhnia is also highly respected. Channel 5, 1+1 and ICTV websites are useful.
