The journalists' safety must be regulated by thoroughly elaborated legal basis, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) Chairperson-in-Office Ivica Dacic said Thursday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Protection of journalists in the OSCE region remains on the top of the organization's agenda, as violence against professionals, working in this sphere, is steadily increasing, according to the chairman.
