Russia proposes global mechanism against disinformation

Recommended Posts

A senior Russian official has suggested that the world of media and information would need a mechanism for monitoring disinformation.

“I think that a mechanism of protection against hoax information must be created,” Russian Foreign Ministry’s spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Saturday while addressing a major economic forum in the city of Saint Petersburg.

The official said Russia was trying to kick off a debate on the need for the creation of a global authority to counter false information disseminated in the media.

"We are trying to somehow spur a discussion regarding the creation of a certain global mechanism, an instrument that would counteract the spread of false information," Zakharova said, adding that the United States blocked one such discussion at the United Nations General Assembly’s information committee in April.
