The best way to counter attacks upon Ukraine, Volker is quoted as saying, as well as to counter Russian propaganda is to strengthen Ukraine.
"We need to have Ukraine, which is a sustainable, resilient, prosperous, strong democracy, so that it would be attractive to the regions in the East, and [be the place]where disinformation and propaganda attacks don't really have much traction," the U.S. official said.
Volker added that any information ban is not a right solution for the problem, and said he advocated complete transparency on the media scene.
U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson appointed Kurt Volker, the former U.S. Ambassador to NATO, to serve as a special representative to Ukraine on July 7. Tillerson and Volker visited Ukraine on July 9.
