The Verkhovna Rada adopted the law “On ensuring the functioning of the Ukrainian language as a state language”, securing its exclusive rights in comparison with other languages in the country. According to the document, the Ukrainian language is recognised as the only possible application in almost all areas of the country’s life. This is a discriminatory law that implies punitive measures. If it comes into force, it will significantly affect the literacy of the population of Ukraine and greatly impoverish it culturally.
The Western media have a list of individuals and organisations against whom they run defamatory campaigns, disregarding basic rules and standards of journalist ethics. The list includes Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, Bashar al-Assad, Victor Orban, the Alternative for Germany, Rosneft, and others.
This conspiracy is consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about Western media outlets as subservient to Western political elites.
Reputable western media do not run coordinated campaigns against specific individuals or organisations on someone's orders. A high degree of media freedom in Western countries is reflected in the top ranks these countries occupy in respective world rankings including the World Press Freedom Index by Reporters without Borders.
