“I stood with the initiative to create in Ukraine the center on counteraction disinformation. Soon, it will start its work,” Zelensky said.
According to the president, in the future, this center should become the international hub for counteraction disinformation and propaganda all over the world.
Moreover, Zelensky plans to introduce lessons on media awareness at schools.
“The lessons of media awareness should appear in school curricula. Besides, people who finished schools a long time ago – our parents, grandfathers, and grandmothers, we should teach them the information hygiene,” Zelensky noted.
