The NATO is going to provide Ukraine with assistance in strategic communications area. Iryna Fryz, Ukrainian MP and the country’s head of delegation at NATO Parliamentary Assembly posted that on Facebook.
According of the official, the Assembly’s Permanent Committee of Civilian Security Dimension voted for the draft resolution, aiming to stand against the use of information as a weapon. The respective session took place in Bucharest on Sunday.
‘The document foresees extension of assistance for partner countries of the Alliance, such as Georgia, Ukraine and Moldova – in terms of strategic communications,’ Fryz said.
The document offers the Alliance member countries to admit that the campaigns aiming to misinform and undermine the European and Atlantic communities are supposed to weaken and de-stabilize these communities and integration processes.
Member countries of the Alliance should develop special units in order to constantly monitor fake news and hostile propaganda, and to oppose them by using facts. ‘Resolution also urges to increase funding of the Alliance’s institutions, specifically the NATO civil diplomacy department,’ Fryz wrote.
