Temnyky [directions on what to cover and how] in the Russian media to Moroz taste?
The Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Oleksandr Moroz believes that Ukraine lacks balanced information state policy aimed at ensuring that the media presents the real state of affairs in the country.
Moroz stated this at a meeting in the Odessa region during a one-day working visit to Odessa yesterday.
The Speaker cited as an example the information broadcasts of Russian television channels where there are usually reports on issues of concern to everybody, coverage of events of national importance, as well as the state of affairs in the regions.
He also said that in Russia they develop respect for the state and a feeling of patriotism which are affirmed by specific examples and actions of the authorities, public organizations, in social, economic and political spheres.
Moroz said that on Ukraines central television channels such information policy which efficiently and fully gives coverage, including of the regions, was more often than not lacking. He asserted that this state of affairs needed to be changed radically.
