Turchynov urges SBU to deal with Ukraine-based online media outlets popularizing terrorist organizations

Ukraine's National Security and Defense Council Secretary Oleksandr Turchynov sent a formal letter to the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) requesting to investigate a live broadcast of the "military parade" of the so-called 'Donetsk People's Republic' held in occupied Donetsk by certain Ukrainian online news outlets.

"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 social media Wednesday, Censor.NET reports citing Interfax-Ukraine.

He stressed that replicating such information "sowing discord and discouragement" and "turning 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 stressed.

"The adequate counteraction to information aggression is a necessary and important element of the protection of our country. That is why I've sent a formal letter to the SBU to investigate this offense and include online media outlets providing direct broadcast of the "celebration" of the Russian occupation forces in Donetsk into the sanctions list," Turchynov said.
