Statement of the OPPOSITION BLOC
The existence of a draft law on non-judicial blocking of websites on the agenda of the Verkhovna Rada is another attempt of the authorities to establish an informational dictatorship in Ukraine.
Representatives of human rights organizations, media workers, the Internet community opposed this draft law. Initiatives proposed by this draft law are a gross violation of the Constitution of Ukraine, human rights, infrigement on freedom of speech. If this draft law is passed, the authorities will get unlimited opportunities to block the work of any Internet resource without trial and investigation, uncontrollably and at their discretion.
The OPPOSITION BLOC will not give a single vote for the draft law No 6688. We call upon all deputies to protect freedom of speech in Ukraine and to prevent the adoption of this draft law.
Censorship and control over the media must not be legalized.
