Journalists organized a protest at a Cabinet of Ministers meeting on Wednesday demanding the dismissal of Ukrainian interior minister Vitaliy Zakharchenko, but Prime Minister Mykola Azarov, in turn, demanded that their accreditation be canceled.

When the Prime Minister arrived for the government meeting, several journalists from various media turned their backs on him, with signs reading “Today journalists, tomorrow your daughter, sister and wife” and the demand to dismiss the interior minister.

Azarov in response demanded that the accreditation of journalists who staged the protest be canceled.

“We respect the work of journalists, but don’t turn the work of the Cabinet of Ministers into a farce. You have the right to appeal to the government. But such actions are a sign of the level of our journalism,” he said.

The Prime Minister asked the journalists to leave the session hall of the government, and they did so.
