UK proposing law to tackle Russian disinformation

The United Kingdom plans to propose an amendment to its online safety law that will require social media platforms to take action against any disinformation posted by foreign state actors, The Government announced.

The law will make sure the companies have a legal duty to tackle state-linked disinformation which aims to harm the UK, with its primary focus being limiting the disinformation spread by Russian state actors.

"The invasion of Ukraine has yet again shown how readily Russia can and will weaponize social media to spread disinformation and lies about its barbaric actions, often targeting the very victims of its aggression," Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries said.
