US Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt suggested Ukraine to fight Russian propaganda with economic development and elimination of corruption, informs press service of US embassy.

“The biggest mistake of Ukrainian government and Ukrainian people is producing “troll factories” like the one located in Saint-Petersburg for generating counter propaganda in social networks. A huge mistake is the creation of the “Ministry of truth”, which is trying to generate alternative information. This is not the way to win the information war”, - the Ambassador believes.

According to Pyatt, successful development should become the only “weapon” of Ukraine in the hybrid war.

“Ukraine doesn’t require state-funded media. What Ukraine really needs is success”, - stated Pyatt.

He also emphasized that “priority number one” for Ukraine in 2016 should become elimination of corruption.

“This is the key element to show that Ukraine is moving in the right direction”, - claimed the Ambassador.

Pyatt noted that the USA support National anti-corruption bureau of Ukraine.
