KIEV, February 2. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Security Service (SBU) has pledged to tighten measures to ban entry to Russian journalists who, it claims, have been waging an ‘information war’ against Ukraine, Markiyan Lubkovsky, the SBU chief’s adviser, told a briefing on Monday.
"We are going to act toughly and out of principle against anybody who will bring lies pouring dirt on us and will wage an information war against Ukraine," Lubkovsky said.
He added that Ukraine’s Security Service would increase border filtration measures together with the State Border Service of Ukraine so as to prevent such journalists from working in the territory of Ukraine and carrying out an information aggression.
Lubkovsky said that one such journalist — a correspondent of the Russian TV channel LifeNews — had recently been expelled from Ukraine.
"We are going to scrutinize anybody coming from Russia. This is a forced measure but we are going to be very tough," Lubkovsky told journalists assuring everybody that the SBU was not waging a war against the media.
A draft resolution was submitted to the Ukrainian parliament last week on suspending the accreditation of journalists working for Russian media outlets at Ukraine’s bodies of state power.
