VIENNA, November 25. /TASS/. The OSCE media representative should demonstrate an adequate response to a European Parliament resolution, which calls for the EU to counter "information warfare" by Russia, the country’s OSCE envoy Alexander Lukashevich said
"We demand that OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media Dunja Mijatovic duly reacted to this European Parliament resolution, which is an open call to limit such freedom," the diplomat said.
In response to a TASS request for a comment, the office of the OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media earlier said it would "closely watch practical actions that follow, and potential problems related to media freedoms in the region will not stay unnoticed."
On Wednesday, the European Parliament adopted a resolution aimed at combating propaganda of third countries, including Russia. The resolution mentions Russian TV channel RT, the Sputnik news agency, the Russkiy Mir (or Russian World) Foundation and the Federal Agency for the Commonwealth of Independent States, Compatriots Living Abroad and International Humanitarian Cooperation (Rossotrudnichestvo).
The document was sharply criticized by the Russian leadership. President Vladimir Putin, in particular, said it demonstrated political degradation of ideas of democracy.
