"We have agreed with the Committee on Freedom of Speech that a bill will be developed, which will make it impossible to hold a TV link-up between Ukraine and aggressor country Russia," he said. The speaker has also added that he hopes that during the consideration of this bill in the VR session hall on Thursday, all MPs will attend the meeting so that to support the document.
