Draft №7299 “On amendment of the Law of Ukraine “On Television and Radio Broadcasting” about informational safety and counteraction to propaganda of the aggressor state” was registered on November 16 by people's deputies from the Committee on Freedom of Speech and Information policy Viktoria Siumar, Olena Kondratiuk and Olha Chervakova.
