Head of the Security Service of Ukraine (SSU) Vasyl Hrytsak proposes to ensure the responsibility for propaganda in media in the Criminal Code of Ukraine, according to his statement, published by the press service.
"The adequate repulsion to enemy requires absolute joint actions, integration of law force and force of public opinion, as weapon against Russian aggression in information space. For this we should, firstly, immediately design and approve changes to the legislation of Ukraine on the criminal responsibility. The SBU is ready to attach to this process," Hrytsak says.
According to him, an adequate legal treatment to all forms and methods of hybrid war should be given in the Criminal Code of Ukraine. "In the context of aggression not only military manuals are written by blood, but also laws for traitors and aggressor’s associates. This is – a force of law," he added.
Hrytsak also offers to conclude act of information unity of Ukrainian journalists in counteraction to enemy.
"Russian propaganda is a weapon, by means of which the enemy tries to destroy our faith in freedom of speech and democracy. The boycott to all representatives of the RF fifth column in information space of Ukraine should become a response to this propaganda," the message reads.
