Reporters Without Borders published on the 12th of February 2014 its annual World Press Freedom Index which measures the level of freedom of information in 180 countries around the world.
According to this year’s edition, the freedom of speech and access to information is getting worse every year in the ex-soviet space.
While the Republic of Moldova holds the best position in the rank (56th) and Armenia and Georgia have also relatively good scores (78th and 84th respectively), in countries such as Ukraine, Russia and Belarus the freedom of the press has declined considerably. Azerbaijan received the lowest score (160th), being in danger of surpressing any media freedom.
