Editorial Principles

Editorial Principles 1

Our editorial team has always adhered to the principles and rules of honest, and independent journalism in its work. We take responsibility for the accuracy of the information disseminated by our publication.

We always strive to report events accurately and truthfully.

For us, accuracy is more important than speed. The information we disseminate in our news section must have compelling evidence obtained from reliable sources and undergo thorough verification before publication.

At the same time, we do not publish only what aligns with the editorial stance. We respect diverse opinions.

We aim to reflect all current opinions, including those arising from conflicting viewpoints. We are open and ready for broad and comprehensive discussions of materials published on the “VNK News” website.

In our work, we are guided by public interests.

When publishing sensational information, we always consider the position of public interest and take into account whether anyone is misleading the public by concealing important facts.

We respect your privacy.

We respect the principle of confidentiality and do not violate it without sufficient justification, but we recognize that public interest takes precedence. When deciding to publish information about a public figure, we seek a balance between public interest and the preservation of confidentiality.

We guarantee source anonymity when necessary.

We respect our sources of information. Sources of information to whom we have promised confidentiality remain protected under all circumstances. However, whenever possible, sources of information should be identified as accurately as possible to allow readers to determine the authenticity of the information’s origin.

We stand for the protection of human rights.

We do not tolerate biased or derogatory statements regarding race, skin color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or any person’s physical or mental condition.

We value and protect our independence.
