The Czech Republic and fellow Visegrad Four countries Poland, Slovakia, and Hungary, are considering launching a ‘Voice of Europe’ style television broadcast aimed at Russian speakers in Ukraine, website Lidové noviny writes. According to the daily, the broadcast would address those whose primary source of news in the Russian language was controlled by the Kremlin. In the ongoing crisis, Russia has been fighting a sophisticated information war, according to sources. Officials at the Czech Foreign Ministry have stressed the need for stable and independent media in Ukraine as well as other ex-Soviet states.
