Pre­amble

Con­sid­er­ing the import­ance of the inform­a­tion space for the real­iz­a­tion of the goals of the United Nations (here­in­after referred to as the UN), tak­ing into account the res­ol­u­tion of the UN Gen­er­al Assembly A / RES / 65/41 of Decem­ber 8, 2010, “Advances in the field of inform­a­tion and com­mu­nic­a­tions in the con­text of inter­na­tion­al secur­ity” Have agreed as fol­lows:

1.The pur­pose of this Charter is to coun­ter­act the use of inform­a­tion tech­no­lo­gies for the viol­a­tion of inter­na­tion­al peace and secur­ity, the cre­ation of an inter­na­tion­al inform­a­tion space, which is char­ac­ter­ized by peace, cooper­a­tion and har­mony.

2. As the main threats in the inter­na­tion­al inform­a­tion space, lead­ing to the viol­a­tion of inter­na­tion­al peace and secur­ity, the fol­low­ing are con­sidered:

1) use of inform­a­tion tech­no­lo­gies and means for car­ry­ing out hos­tile acts and acts of aggres­sion, includ­ing using glob­al media and social media;
2) actions in the inter­na­tion­al inform­a­tion space with the aim of under­min­ing the mil­it­ary-polit­ic­al, fin­an­cial-eco­nom­ic and social sys­tems of anoth­er state, extern­al neg­at­ive inform­a­tion-psy­cho­lo­gic­al impact on the pop­u­la­tion, includ­ing using glob­al media and social media;
3) use of the inter­na­tion­al inform­a­tion space by state and non-state struc­tures, organ­iz­a­tions, groups and indi­vidu­als for ter­ror­ist and oth­er crim­in­al pur­poses;
4) the cross-bor­der dis­tri­bu­tion of mis­in­form­a­tion and so-called “fake” inform­a­tion, which is con­trary to the prin­ciples and norms of inter­na­tion­al law, as well as nation­al laws of the states;
5) use of glob­al media and social media to dis­sem­in­ate inform­a­tion that incites intereth­nic, inter­ra­cial and sec­tari­an enmity, mater­i­als, images or any oth­er rep­res­ent­a­tion of ideas or the­or­ies that pro­mote, incite or incite to hatred, dis­crim­in­a­tion or viol­ence against any per­son or group of indi­vidu­als, if, as a pre­text, factors based on race, skin col­or, nation­al or eth­nic ori­gin, and reli­gion are used for this;
6) manip­u­la­tion of inform­a­tion flows in the inform­a­tion space of oth­er states, dis­in­form­a­tion and con­ceal­ment of inform­a­tion with the pur­pose of dis­tort­ing the psy­cho­lo­gic­al and spir­itu­al envir­on­ment of soci­ety, the erosion of tra­di­tion­al cul­tur­al, spir­itu­al, mor­al, eth­ic­al and aes­thet­ic val­ues.

3.Activity of each UN mem­ber state and glob­al media in the inter­na­tion­al inform­a­tion space should be based on five basic prin­ciples:

1) Dia­logue of civil­iz­a­tions.

2) Friend­ship of peoples.

3) Good deeds.

4) Spir­itu­al sov­er­eignty.

5) Dig­nity of the indi­vidu­al and the people.

4. States Parties to the United Nations resolve con­flicts in the inter­na­tion­al inform­a­tion space, primar­ily through nego­ti­ation, or oth­er peace­ful means of their choice in such a way that inter­na­tion­al peace and secur­ity are not endangered.

5. In order to coun­ter­act the use of the inter­na­tion­al inform­a­tion space for ter­ror­ist pur­poses, the UN mem­ber states:

1) take meas­ures to coun­ter­act the use of the inter­na­tion­al inform­a­tion space for ter­ror­ist pur­poses and recog­nize for this the need for joint, decis­ive action;
2) will seek to devel­op com­mon approaches to stop the func­tion­ing of glob­al media and Inter­net resources that pro­mote ter­ror­ist activ­it­ies.

6. Each state party to this Charter under­takes not to help, not to encour­age and coun­ter­act the actions of inter­na­tion­al inform­a­tion ter­ror­ism, includ­ing mis­in­form­a­tion cam­paigns, using glob­al media and social media.

7. The par­ti­cip­at­ing States of this Charter under­take to cooper­ate in the field of inform­a­tion incid­ents by report­ing them and cla­ri­fy­ing them to the spe­cial Cen­ter for Stra­tegic Ana­lys­is to Com­bat Inform­a­tion Ter­ror­ism under the UN Secur­ity Coun­cil.
“Inform­a­tion incid­ent” means the unin­ten­ded impact of the state on the inform­a­tion envir­on­ment of the soci­ety of the state party to this Charter, which has led to neg­at­ive con­sequences.
