Ministry Of Information Is Imperative To Ukraine's Security - Stets
8 January, 2015

Ukraine needs an information strategy, according to the MP Yuri Stets, who is the acting head of the country's controversial new Ministry of Information. "We don't have a single political institution that deals with political information, nor do we have any information strategy," Stets told reporters, noting that the war in Ukraine has made the creation of such a ministry imperative. Critics of this new ministry say it is a challenge to press freedom. 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.
