OSCE representative notes active media environment in Ukraine.

OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media Teresa Ribeiro has noted the active media environment in Ukraine.

She said this during a high-level online meeting "Building the Capacity to Resist Information Influences: Freedom of Speech as Component of Information Security" on Thursday, July 15, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“There is an active media environment in this country, which is, of course, very positive, because sometimes indifference is the real poison. I am sure this is not the case in Ukraine. Sometimes this happens in mature democracies, where people take people's rights for granted. This is wrong and we have to fight for them every day,” Ribeiro said.

The OSCE representative also outlined the search for a balance between countering disinformation and protecting freedom of speech as a challenge for Ukraine, which is committed to the ideas of freedom of expression.

Ribeiro recalled the work of the OSCE project coordinator in Ukraine aimed at strengthening media self-regulation mechanisms and cooperation with the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy to develop an online platform on media literacy.

As Ukrinform reported, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba and OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media Teresa Ribeiro opened a high-level online meeting "Building the Capacity to Resist Information Influences: Freedom of Speech as Component of Information Security" on July 15.

The event is part of Ukraine's push for the intensification of the international community's efforts to combat disinformation and hybrid information warfare.
