Turchynov asks SBU to include electronic media broadcasting "military parade" of 'DPR' into sanction list
Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov has addressed with an official letter to the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) regarding the inclusion in the authorized list of Ukrainian electronic media that provided a live broadcast of the "military parade" of the so-called 'DPR' from occupied Donetsk.
"Today, when the whole world is commemorating millions of people who were killed during the Second World War, some Ukrainian electronic media broadcasted a so-called "military parade" from occupied Donetsk under the heading "Broadcasting from the 'DPR'," Turchynov wrote on Facebook on Wednesday.
He stressed that replicating such information "to sow discord and discouragement" and "to turn the liberation war into a civil war" is one of the priorities of the hybrid war that Russia is unfolding against us. "And in this case, we can talk about a very specific crime - the popularization of a terrorist organization," the NSDC secretary added.
"The adequate counteraction to information aggression is a necessary and important element of the protection of our country. That is why I've sent an official letter to the SBU to investigate this offense and introduce electronic media providing a direct broadcast of the "celebration" of the Russian occupation forces in Donetsk into the sanctions list," said Turchynov.
