The rules in the draft law “On media” on mandatory data entry to the register of information on changing the circulation of printed press are to be reviewed, as the deputy chairman of the parliamentary Committee on Humanitarian and Information Policy said. Mykyta Poturaev announced it on January 29 during the public discussion of the bill, as Detektor Media reported.

IMI media lawyer Ali Safarov noted that the delayed entry of the circulation information in the register entailed considerable responsibility of printed press editions. "But this is the information which poses no public threat," he said.

Poturaev found these arguments to be well-grounded and promised to review the rules.

As IMI reported, on January 17, the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Humanitarian and Information Policy recommended that the Parliament adopt the bill No. 2693 “On Media” as the basis.

The new legislative act should become a comprehensive document that will replace several media laws: on television and radio broadcasting, printed press in Ukraine, news agencies, National Council for Television and Radio Broadcasting, state support for mass media and social protection of journalists, about the procedure for coverage of activities of state and local self-government bodies in Ukraine by mass media.

On January 15, a group of MPs from the European Solidarity faction have registered an alternative media bill No. 2693-1 .
