The decision of Pechersky district court concerning a ban of distribution of criticism about government activity obviously causes concern in a providing context in Ukraine freedom of speech.
About it reports a press - service of the President.
"At first sight, it really looks as approach to a freedom of speech and thoughts", - the Deputy head of the Secretariat of President - the representative of the President in the Central Election Commission and the Constitutional Court Marina Stavniychuk told today at a briefing.
"It can't but disturb representatives of mass media, and from the point of view of further development of the state seriously has to disturb and all society. As one of the main real achievements of the today's Ukrainian state and society is the freedom of speech", - she told.
"Each time it is necessary to defend the position in fight, including to be able to compete adequately. As by a ban far you won't leave", - she told.
G. Stavniychuk also I noticed that this fact з causes certain associations with spring offers of PR and BYuT of changes in the Constitution where "there were real approaches to a freedom of speech in many offers" (in particular concerning responsibility of mass media for "society misinformation").
"Today we already see it in the practical plane. Representatives of mass media, dear journalists, seriously become thoughtful over the future prospect and who can give you it for a freedom of speech and freedom of press. And who it is real, being covered with democratic slogans and stamps, in practical life carries out the corresponding approach", - I told M. Stavniychuk. Clearly, she noted that during political and first of all electoral processes the corresponding law and order - including in a question of conducting propaganda work has to be provided. "But it is thus absolutely clear that propaganda and a dale of elections and after can be both for and against. And the normal democratic way just resolves it", - she told.
.Stavniychuk also I noticed that for today the decision of Pechersky court in fact isn't made yet - at the same time will lock mass media to extend the relevant information is only an instrument for ensuring of requirements of the claim before consideration of the case in fact.
