The group was established to discuss and analyze the proposals for countering “Russia’s aggression in the information space” received from general public, experts, mass media representatives, authorities.

Thus, it is planned to implement an initiative proposed by SBU chief Vasily Gritsak to make changes to the laws of Ukraine. He urges to carry out “a proper legal assessment of all forms and methods of Russia’s hybrid war against Ukraine”.
