According to the minister, the authorities do not regulate the blogosphere, but the content
The Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports Volodymyr Borodyansky said that anyone who violates Ukrainian legislation with the help of certain content will be responsible for what is written. The official said this in an interview with "Mirror of the week."
The minister also added that the authorities regulate not the blogging sphere, but the content that they publish.
"We do not regulate the blogosphere, we regulate the content. And if someone violates Ukrainian legislation with the help of certain content, for example, calls for hostility, then bear responsibility for this," explained Borodyansky.
According to the minister, bloggers were previously responsible for the content in accordance with the current legislation. The decision to regulate the content is explained by the state security officer by the fact that now a large number of people are consumers of blogging content. Therefore, in this way the ministry plans to protect society from misinformation.
“Previously, the state registered the media, provided the media with additional protection, and every word that sounded in the media is a little more weight than just a word on the street. Now there is a lot of information. And any society should answer for itself: what are the rules for information in my space, how I protect my citizens from the fact that the information does not correspond to reality, that is, disinformation, etc., "added Vladimir.
