How to become untouchable in Ukraine

Becoming "untouchable" in Ukraine is quite inexpensive. To do this, people who do not have proper education or skills can become "journalists." On the online ads site Slando, the offers to buy certificates of journalist for 1,000 UAH appeared.

Among other things, the author of the ad promises almost complete immunity for the buyer of the certificate:

"The journalist status provides substantial support since journalists are protected by law against interference in their activities.These may be detention by the traffic policemen, the passport regime, the queue in state institutions, etc. According to the current legislation of Ukraine, any criminal activity against a journalist is equated with activity against a law enforcement officer and is punishable by significant terms of imprisonment."
