As Ukrainian publications protest the libel law,
adopted in the first reading, with blank front pages and black
banners on their websites, programers have found their own way to
give lawmakers a piece of their mind. Several unnamed developers
recently launched a website called “Who is in the (Verkhovna)
Rada?,” where anybody can upload info about the current lawmakers.
The website www.htovradi.info
contains personal pages of all the lawmakers and candidates and is
supposed to work on the same principle as WikiLeaks or Wikipedia.
This means literally anyone can add information they find essential
or just want everybody to know.
A dramatic video informing about the website
was uploaded on Sept. 17, featuring a person in the Guy Fawkes mask
associated with international hacker group Anonymous. Despite an
extensive social media campaign to spread the message and the
spamming of journalists with emails, the video
) has only several dozen views.
