It is impossible to limit the freedom of mass media in Europe in any way as MEP from Germany Maximilian Krah stated during telethon of 112 Ukraine, ZIK and NewsOne “No freedom of speech.”

“Generally, it is impossible to limit the freedom of mass media in Europe in any way. If I violate your freedom of speech, your rights; if you think that I really do it in some way, it is impossible as you act in the interests of your audience. We see on the history or history of philosophy that it is really impossible,” the MEP underlined.

Krah added that there were cases of hatred to particular groups of people in some countries. “But it is just an exception and it is prosecuted in Europe. You can broadcast everything,” he added.
