The National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) of Ukraine has developed a special “anti-occupation glossary”, which has been recommended for use by Ukrainian officials, diplomats and journalists. Relevant document publishes press service of the department.
According to the NSDC, the dictionary was developed to counter the Kremlin’s propaganda and information fakes, which the Russian special services allegedly introduce into speech to shield Russia’s “occupation” actions on the Crimean peninsula and in eastern Ukraine.
For example, the document states that instead of “in Ukraine” one should write “in Ukraine”, and instead of “in Donbass” one should say “in Donbass”. In addition, it is recommended to call the reunification of Russia and Crimea “the Russian invasion of Crimea” or “the temporary occupation of Crimea by Russia.”
Military actions in Donbass are advised to be called “Russia’s armed aggression against Ukraine” or “Russian-Ukrainian war” and so on. In total, the glossary currently contains 64 terms and phrases.
Earlier, Minister of Culture and Information Policy Alexander Tkachenko said that a virtual museum of “Russian aggression” has appeared in Ukraine. The official noted that the platform on which the facts of Russia’s violation of the territorial integrity of Ukraine are clearly illustrated will help protect the country from the Kremlin’s information fakes.
