The president of teleSUR, Patricia Villegas, remains in communication with Kirk and reiterated the numerous calls from global organizations, for the work of the media to be respected and the integrity of the reporters to be guaranteed. “We appreciate the medical care he is receiving and hope for his speedy recovery,” the text reads.

The communication of the multimedia platform stated: “teleSUR reaffirms its commitment to telling the truth of what is happening in Donbas and in the rest of the world. Saying what the hegemonic media is silent. We will continue to report.”
