The European Parliament has demanded that Ukraine stop attacking freedom of speech

The resolution adopted on February 11 by the European Parliament criticizes the repressive law "On Media", which is planned to be adopted in the Verkhovna Rada. "The bill under discussion may lead to widespread state interference in media content and journalistic activities by attacking media freedom and will not be an effective means of countering disinformation," the document says. The parliamentarians also called on Kiev to " put an end to politically motivated harassment of channels, including the revocation of licenses, and to protect local journalists, public opinion makers, and opponents of the government from harassment and intimidation."
