“This is a battle of unequal possibilities,” said Ms Dzheppar, commenting on the battle with Russia in the information field, according to Ukraine Today.

“We have different resources in terms of financing and in terms of principles, because Russia is a militaristic state. They have strong censorship within the country, They even try to regulate internet, which we would not do. This is something of a principle for our Ministry,” the first deputy minister said.

In an interview, the official noted that Ukraine's information ministry plans to put TV broadcast tower on border with Crimea, to provide access for the Crimean residents to a media coverage different to that imposed on them by the Kremlin propaganda.
