Americans who got on the “black list” of Kiev complained to Congress

The US citizens who got on the “black list” of Kiev demanded that Congress protect their rights. A group of US citizens who got on the “black list” of the Ukrainian Center for Countering Disinformation (CPD) appealed to Congress with a demand to take measures to protect their rights and freedom of speech.

The corresponding letter is published on the website of the Washington Shiller Institute.

The list of Kiev was published on July 14. The authors of the document noted that the CPD accused them of promoting “Russian propaganda”, and also declared them “information terrorists” and “war criminals”. They also noted that the CPD is funded by the US government. In this regard, the signatories to the letter demanded that the congressmen “investigate the financing of this foreign state agency and its role in creating a direct threat to the rights and security of American citizens.”

In total, the names of 72 individuals from a number of countries were included in the “black list” of the Ukrainian CPD.

On March 9, 2021, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky announced the launch of the Center for Countering Disinformation. According to him, the CPD should become an international hub that will fight propaganda all over the world.
