Ukraine is now on the frontline of the information war, and Ukrainian reporters stay at the cutting edge in this war. Marie Yovanovitch, the U.S. ambassador in Ukraine, said that at an international media conference in Kyiv, according to Radio Liberty.

The official urged Ukrainian reporters to ‘stay non-biased and keep relying on facts’. ‘We reckon that Ukraine’s further progress on the path of reforms is the best way to save its sovereignty from the external threats, from the Russian aggression. But that’s complicated; there are a lot of issues, and one of the most serious ones is spreading the misinformation. So it is crucial for Ukraine to have the media that one can trust; the media that can effectively struggle misinformation that actually became a weapon,’ Yovanovitch said.

Previously, Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said that the EU should increase efforts for more effective opposition to the Russian propaganda.
