"The adequate repulsion to enemy requires absolute joint actions, integration of force of law and force of public opinion as a weapon against Russian aggression in information space. To that end, we should, firstly, immediately develop and adopt changes to the legislation of Ukraine on the criminal liability. The SBU is ready to join this work. Our goal is to provide an adequate legal assessment of all forms and methods of a hybrid war in the Criminal Code of Ukraine. In the context of aggression, not only military manuals are written in blood, but also the laws for traitors and aggressor's associates. This is the force of law. Secondly, we should conclude an act of information unity of Ukrainian journalists in confronting the enemy. Russia's propaganda is a weapon, by means of which the enemy tries to destroy our faith in freedom of speech and democracy," the press center quoted Hrytsak as saying.
