"Everything is fine and logical, in my opinion," said MP Yuriy Lutsenko from the Petro Poroshenko Bloc when asked about the controversy surrounding the creation of a Ministry of Information. Critics of this new ministry have suggested that it will provide the government with a legalized way to censor the press. "There may be differing opinions between the public and Parliament, but the Prime Minister, along with the majority of MPs believe this [ministry] is necessary," Lutsenko told reporters. Ukraine's recently elected parliament approved a new Cabinet of Ministers on December 2, 2014 and, in the same vote, elected a new Minister of Information.
