Statement of the OPPOSITION BLOC
The ban on universities and other institutions of the Ministry of Education to use the domain zones “ru” is a new example of the profanation of the struggle for national security. In these domain zones there is a huge array of scientific information that cannot be found in the Ukrainian segment of the Internet. The OPPOSITION BLOC demands the abolition of the ban, which cut the opportunities for scientific and pedagogical activity.
The task of Ukrainian universities is to educate class specialists, not intellectual-limited amateurs. The way in which the current government conducts education is the way of turning Ukraine into a backward country with an illiterate population. The OPPOSITION BLOC stands against the intellectual and spiritual impoverishment of our society.
Any restrictions that under the guise of “fighting for national security” protect our society from the achievements of world science and culture should be abolished. The OPPOSITION BLOC advocates free access to Internet resources. The right of choice is an inalienable right of Ukrainian citizens. No one has the right to decide for people how to live, what to read, listen and watch.
