The press service of the Agency for Information and Mass Communications (AIMC) said that the certificate would be issued free of charge to journalists, accredited by the agency. With its help, allegedly, it would be possible to freely visit government and other organizations, public and cultural places for working purposes.

“Journalists with a certificate will be able to access the necessary information and participate in international and departmental events conducted by the state bodies,” the agency noted then.

Journalists still have not received any ID cards. AIMC stated that the document is ready, and it is being considered by the Ministry of Justice.
