Ukraine will begin to test the media literacy course for schoolchildren, which will be subsequently introduced in every school, as reported by the Minister of Education and Science of Ukraine Liliya Hrynevych at the presentation of the initiative on information and media literacy "Learn and Distinguish (L2D)".
According to her, for Ukraine the issue of disinformation is especially relevant.
"However the situation for us, Ukrainian citizens, becomes even more difficult, because we all live in conditions of a hybrid war, and it is very important for the survival of our state so that citizens could understand and know how to think critically," Hrynevych said.
The course will be tested in 50 schools in Ukraine. After, the system "Learn and Distinguish (L2D)" will be introduced into the schools of the country.
Earlier, during his speech at the economic forum in Davos, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko called populism and the dissemination of untrue information the main threats to modern Europe.
