Accreditation of journalists, who staged a protest during a government meeting on Wednesday, will be cancelled, PM’s spokesman Vitaliy Lukyanenko posted on the premier's page on Facebook, Interfax informs.

 "The prime minister ordered the cancellation of the accreditation of protesters that violated the procedure for covering the work of the Cabinet of Ministers. This is a legal demand. According to the legislation, the information and public liaison department of the Secretariat of the Cabinet of Ministers that is responsible for accreditation will fulfill this task," reads a posting.

Lukyanenko explained that the procedure, which is envisaged by the law, would personally affect those people who disturbed the meeting. “The media that were represented by those journalists will be able to accredit other employees. No one hindered and will not hinder journalists from working with the government,” spokesman assured.

Lukyanenko said he was sorry about the fact that his colleagues did not want to and had failed to find an appropriate way to express their position and, even more importantly to contribute to finding an effective and legal solution to the problem.

"Journalists can do this effectively without holding up posters. They should decide on their own who benefited from their actions and if their play can be considered fair," he said.
