"Ukraine continues to systematically root out dissent," the ministry said. "Allegedly, a means for achieving the goal is to cut short any possible leak of objective information and to introduce total censorship."
Earlier, Ukraine’s National Television and Radio Broadcasting Council readied a list with 49 names of Russian nationals who should be blamed of “instigating interethnic hatred and propaganda of war.”
"Besides, rebroadcast of 15 Russian TV channels has been banned,” the Russian ministry said. “Ukraine’s Interior Ministry and National Television and Radio Broadcasting Council openly announce that more names are to be added on the list.”
In the country “in fact, a moratorium on criticism of the current authorities has been introduced in the country.”
“Ukraine seems to testify by these deeds to ‘its adherence to basic European values,’” it said.
Russia "vehemently condemns these openly discriminative measures and hopes that the world community and special organisations will voice their principled opinion on the decisions of Ukrainian law enforcers who rudely violate human rights, including the right to the freedom of expression.
