The Military Media Centre has been launched in Kyiv to ensure the promotion of a unified information policy on repelling Russian aggression, the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine reports.
The Military Media Centre includes representatives of the communication units of the Ministry of Defence, the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the Security Service of Ukraine, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the National Guard, the National Police, the State Border Guard Service, the State Emergency Service, the Administration of State Guard of Ukraine, the State Special Communications Service of Ukraine, and Ukroboronprom.
“Since the beginning of large-scale aggression, we faced informational challenges that did not exist before. However, we coped well with them and gained unique experience. Our goals today are to become the single voice of the security and defence forces. After all, we stand united on all fronts, including the informational one. We must become a reliable source of information in the field of defence. Together, cooperating and complementing each other, we will be able to give a more comprehensive picture of the events unfolding at the front,” Deputy Minister of Defence Hanna Malyar said during the presentation of the project concept.
The Centre aims to facilitate the work of Ukrainian and foreign journalists covering the Russian-Ukrainian war. It will organise briefings, and press conferences, inform about current events with the participation of representatives of the security forces, and hold discussions and expert panels devoted to the topic of Ukraine’s defence capabilities.
