President Zelensky instructed the Cabinet of Ministers to draft a bill on the requirements and standards of news by December 31, 2019. This was reported in decree No. 837/2019, published on the website of the President's Office.

Thus, the Cabinet of Ministers is obliged to develop and submit to the Verkhovna Rada a number of draft laws regulating the activities of media in the country.

“Drafting and submitting for consideration to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine draft laws on regulating media activities in Ukraine, providing, in particular, articles on requirements and standards of news, mechanisms for preventing the dissemination of false, distorted information, its refutation,” the decree says.

Also, the Cabinet is expected to draft laws according to which it will be prohibited for individuals and legal entities of the aggressor country to own or finance media in Ukraine.

In addition, the Cabinet of Ministers should provide for increased liability for violation of information legislation.

 
Earlier Volodymyr Zelensky said there is democracy in the Verkhovna Rada - for now. Zelensky noticed this in his video blog "Frankly with the President".

“It’s difficult for people in our faction, I understand them. Why is it difficult? Because there hasn't been such a party before. 254 different people. Of course, there are those who understand all the laws: leading economists, lawyers, but there are ordinary people, too. They need time to settle with this process. However, on the other hand, they show the attitude of a particular class and tell you where there are errors in certain laws, so they are representatives of different sectors of society, with different mentality, with different earnings. So for now, we have democracy,” Volodymyr Zelensky said.
