Bulgaria's Ministry of Defence has created a body that will monitor misinformation on the Internet and the media. According to the new regulations for the activities of the Information Center at the department, promulgated in the State Gazette, the structure will monitor and analyze "hybrid information attacks and disinformation campaigns directed against the army and against national security and defence policy." 


The monitoring will be carried out of "classic" and modern media outlets. 

The center will provide daily, weekly and monthly reports on how the policy of the Ministry of Defence has affected the target audiences. 

The director of the information center Vladimir Milensky assured the MPs of the parliamentary defence committee that the operation of the new center will not lead to censorship.
