The Center for Countering Disinformation will launch its work this month and will bring together specialists from various departments and private companies, presidential spokesperson Iuliia Mendel has said.

“President Volodymyr Zelensky has proposed setting up the Center for Countering Disinformation. The structure will start working this month. This center will bring together specialists from various departments and private companies, who will check the information that appears in the public space. Disinformation will be refuted. The President expects that the center will work at the international level, because there is a problem of misinformation in many countries […]," Mendel said during a TV show on the Dom TV channel.

She also added that President Zelensky proposed introducing media literacy lessons at schools and "teaching the older generation the rules of separating true information from false information."

As reported, the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) made a decision to establish the Center for Countering Disinformation that will begin its work next week.
