At least 14 reporters arbitrarily arrested during Russian protests

first_img Читать по-русски в PDF и ниже / Read in RussianReporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the arbitrary arrests of at least 14 journalists while trying to cover anti-corruption demonstrations in Russia on 26 March, and calls on the authorities to drop all charges against them and to punish the police officers responsible.Both the protests themselves and the crackdown were without precedent since 2012. According to initial counts, between 32,000 and 93,000 people participated in demonstrations throughout the country and around 1,800 of them were reportedly arrested.According to RSF’s tally, at least 14 of those detained were journalists who had gone to cover the protests.Alexander Plyushchev of Echo of Moscow, Pyotr Verzilov of Mediazona, Pyotr Parkhomenko of Kommersant-FM, Timofey Dzyadko of RBC, Sofiko Arifjanova of Otkrytaya Rossya and Alec Luhn, a US reporter for The Guardian, were arrested in Moscow and were held for several hours at a police station.The last three were charged with participating in an unauthorized demonstration but the charge against Luhn seems to have been dropped later after the foreign ministry intervened.Sergei Satanovski of Novaya Gazeta, Nadezhda Zaytseva of Vedomosti, Roman Pimenov of Interpress and freelancer Artyom Aleksandrov were arrested in Saint Petersburg.Sergei Rasulov of Kommersant, Fayna Kachabekova of Kavkazskaya Politika and Vladimir Servinovski of Eto Kavkaz were arrested in Makhachkala, the capital of Dagestan, in the Russian Caucasus. Alexander Nikishin of Otkrytyi Kanal was arrested in the southwestern city of Saratov and was sentenced the next day to four days of administrative detention for “refusing to comply with instructions from the police.”Alexei Alexeyev, the news website Chernika’s correspondent in the northwestern city of Petrozavodsk, was hit by a policeman while filming a demonstrator’s arrest. The unidentified policeman hit him in the face and legs, broke his glasses and insulted him.“It is unacceptable that so many journalists were arrested although they were clearly identified,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk.“Even more disturbing is the fact that some may be prosecuted and one was given a beating. This behaviour by the police contravenes Russian law and the international treaties by which Russia is bound. We ask the authorities to respect media freedom, punish those responsible and ensure that the police are properly trained to respect journalists’ rights.”I showed my press card [to a riot police officer] but he just said: “So what?”. Sergei SatanovskiSergei Satanovski told RSF: “I showed my press card [to a riot police officer] but that did not convince him. He just said: ‘So what?’.” Fayna Kachabekova said: “I showed the police officers my Kavkazskaya Politika correspondent’s card and I asked them to give me back my phone. But again no one reacted.”The protests against corrupt practices within the political elite were held in more than 80 Russian cities in response to a call from opposition leader Alexei Navalny. Despite their size, the protests were largely ignored by the leading national media and were curiously absent from the main online news aggregators.Russia is ranked 148th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

Среди них РБГ насчитывает не менее 14 журналистов, которые освещали митинги.Александр Плющев («Эхо Москвы»), Петр Верзилов («Mediazona»), Петр Пархоменко («Коммерсантъ-FM»), Тимофей Дзядко («РБК»), Софико Арфиджанова («Открытая Россия») и американский журналист Алек Лун (Alec Luhn, «The Guardian») были задержаны в Москве и оставались в течение нескольких часов в полицейском участке. Последние три были затем обвинены в «участии в несанкционированном митинге». Однако, похоже, что обвинения, выдвинутые против Алека Луна, позже были сняты в результате вмешательства Министерства иностранных дел.Сергей Сатановский («Новая Газета»), Надежда Зайцева («Ведомости»), Роман Пименов («Interpress») и независимый журналист Артем Александров были задержаны в Санкт-Петербурге. Сергей Расулов («Коммерсантъ»), Фаина Качабекова («Кавказская Политика») и Владимир Севриновский («Это Кавказ») были задержаны в столице республики Дагестан, Махачкале. Александр Никишин («Открытый Канал») был задержан в Саратове и приговорен на следующий день к административному аресту на четверо суток за «неповиновение законному распоряжению сотрудника полиции».Алексей Алексеев (соответствующая информация находится на сайте «Черника») в Петрозаводске был избит сотрудником полиции во время проведения съемок протестной акции и задержания одного из протестующих. Неизвестный сотрудник полиции без жетона ударил его в лицо и по ноге, разбил его очки и оскорбил.«Неприемлемо, что так много журналистов было задержано, несмотря на то, что они отчетливо представились, – заявил глава отдела Восточной Европы и Центральной Азии РБГ Иоханн Бир. – Еще более тревожным является тот факт, что некоторые из них могут быть привлечены к ответственности и то, что один журналист был избит. Эти действия полиции нарушают как российское законодательство, так и международные договоры, к которым присоединилась Россия. Мы призываем власти уважать свободу прессы, наказать виновных и обеспечить, чтобы сотрудники полиции были впредь надлежащим образом проинформированы относительно прав журналистов».

Он мне сказал, «Ну и что?», – рассказал РБГ Сергей Сатановский. «Я показала полиции удостоверение корреспондента «Кавказской политики» и попросила их вернуть мой телефон. Но никто не реагировал», – свидетельствует Фаина Качабекова.Манифестации протеста против коррупции политических элит прошли в 80 городах России по призыву оппозиционера Алексея Навального. Несмотря на их необычайный размах, эти акции были в значительной степени проигнорированы крупными общенациональными СМИ, и как это не странно, отсутствовали у крупных интернет-агрегаторов контента.Россия занимает 148 место из 180 во всемирном рейтинге свободы прессы за 2016 год, опубликованном РБГ.last_img read more

Exasol Rated Best-in-Class Across 10 Measures in Dresner’s ADI Report 2021

first_img Twitter Facebook ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 9, 2021– For the fourth consecutive year, Exasol, the analytics database, has been named a customer experience and a vendor credibility Overall Leader in the Dresner Advisory Services Wisdom of Crowds® 2021 Analytical Data Infrastructure (ADI) Report. Exasol also achieved a perfect recommend score again – 100% of Exasol’s customers who participated in the report would recommend its analytics database. High placement in the upper-right quadrant confirms that customers receive high value and have strong confidence in Exasol. In addition, Exasol was also ranked best-in-class for ten different measures, including reliability of technology, technical support and responsiveness, and integrity. The Dresner 2021 ADI Market Study provides a detailed picture of perceptions, intentions, and realities associated with ADI platform choices. The report examines market preferences for ADI platforms including deployment and licensing priorities, data types, data modeling/management of data associated with ADI, and data preparation and loading priorities. It also covers leading choices in ADI development and deployment, as well as ADI interfaces and analytical features. “We congratulate Exasol on maintaining a perfect recommend score for the fourth consecutive year from customers and receiving best-in-class in ten customer value measurement categories – demonstrating the value its customers perceive with its platform,” Howard Dresner, founder and chief research officer at Dresner Advisory Services. “Business and IT leaders require robust analytical data infrastructure systems more than ever to deliver business value during these unprecedented times.” According to the Dresner ADI report, business intelligence (BI) related use cases—business reporting and dashboards, specifically—ranked as the top priority for ADI platforms. The appetite for traditional BI use cases continues to increase, as performance ranked as the highest priority for ADI platforms in 2021. Additionally, in-memory data capabilities are an important priority for more than 50% of respondents, and columnar data models surpass row-format based models for organizing analytical data. The report also found that the majority of business functions prefer a cloud deployment versus on-premise software, but on-prem isn’t going away any time soon. It is still a priority for 40% of organizations. According to the report, respondents’ preferences are dictated by use cases, with some being more suited to cloud services and others to on-prem deployments. As a result, multiple buying centres are working with hybrid deployment models for ADI platforms, a preference that increases with company size. “As a customer-obsessed organization, it is validation of our day-to-day work that our customers rate us so highly,” said Aaron Auld, CEO at Exasol. “Maintaining a perfect recommend score for the fourth consecutive year is as much as we can hope for and the least which we expect of ourselves. I’m incredibly proud of the Exasol team and the way they put all their energy into helping our customers on their analytics journey. Our outstanding results in the Dresner report are testament to that.” To read the full report, visit our Dresner ADI 2021 page.
