The Executive Board of the European Centre for Press and Media Freedom (ECPMF) has been informed this Saturday, 10 December 2022, that Ljiljana Smajlović, a member of the Executive Board, currently works with Russia Today Balkans. The collaboration with a propaganda platform financed by the Russian government is not compatible with the goals and the mission of ECPMF. Therefore it was immediately agreed with Ljiljana Smajlović that she resigns from her position in the Executive Board and she will no longer be a member of the ECPMF cooperative.
Ljiljana Smajlović has been a member of the ECPMF Executive Board since 2015.
Yannis Kotsifos, Chair of the Executive Board
