Brussels is aware of the first reading vote on the relevant bill in
the Ukrainian parliament, Interfax-Ukraine learned from the European
Commission on Thursday.

“The criticism voiced by parliamentary experts gives us reason to
raise concerns about the possible inconsistence [of the proposed
amendments] with freedom of speech, as well as with the obligations

evaluated by experts from the OSCE and the Council of Europe to check
whether they are in line with European standards.
