Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy previously took control over all broadcast media discontinuing any media that was not under government control. Taking the anti-democracy movement another step further, Zelenskyy then banned any political opposition party and confiscated the funds of his political opposition.
These totalitarian actions were taken while the U.S. State Department was simultaneously claiming defense of Ukraine as vital to democracy. Meanwhile, U.S. taxpayers are being forced by congress to send $60 billion in aid into the corrupt country in order to cover the wages, salaries and benefits of Ukraine government officials. Apparently, a strange and twisted definition of democracy exists in the dictionary of Washington DC.
The latest anti-democracy revelation is even more stark. The U.S. State Dept funded a govt/NGO Ukraine conference on ‘disinformation’.
(UKRAINE) – Representatives of public authorities, NGOs, the media and international experts took part in a round table on countering disinformation. The participants discussed the methods used in Ukraine and abroad, as well as the legal framework and features of interaction between civil society and government agencies to counter fakes and disinformation in the context of cybersecurity.
During the discussion, Acting Head of the Center for Countering Disinformation Andriy Shapovalov insisted that persons who deliberately spread disinformation are information terrorists. He noted that in order to protect the information space, it is necessary to amend the legislation.
“Information terrorists need to know that they will have to answer to the law as war criminals,” he said.
Also during his speech, the acting Head of the Center noted that Ukraine is confidently winning the information struggle.
The round table was organized by the National Academy of the Security Service of Ukraine, the US Civil Research and Development Fund (CRDF Global Ukraine), the NGO “International Academy of Information”, the coordination platform “National Cybersecurity Cluster”. The event was supported by the U.S. Department of State. (LINK)
