MOSCOW, October 14. /TASS/. Head of the Russian Presidential Council for Civil Society Development and Human Rights Mikhail Fedotov urged President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday to demilitarize the public mind and stop the information war (with Ukraine).
“It is important to use the society’s current level of confidence in the power, the high rating of the power structure not for military, but for civilian mobilization, aimed at the settlement of the real peacetime problems,” Fedotov said at a meeting of the Human Rights Council.
The Council head said wars originate not on the frontline, but in people’s minds, therefore the main goal at the moment is demilitarization of the public mind.
“Only switching from the information war to information-based mutual understanding, we will be able to gradually restore brotherly, friendly relations between the peoples of Russia and Ukraine. Mutual animosity is a catastrophe for both countries, it’s absurd,” Fedotov said.
He proposed as the measures to this end to more often show on TV films based on novels of the Ukrainian-born 19th-century writer Nikolay Gogol, create programs about the works of Ukrainian prominent poet Taras Shevchenko, invite Ukrainian actors, writers, artists and scientists. “We have so many ties with Ukraine and its wonderful people. Such relations should be cultivated and protected,” the Human Rights Council head said.
