The article considers cyber-victimological problems that arise as a result of information violence perpetrated by some political parties and anti-Ukrainian organizations with the help of certain TV and radio companies, as well as the information and telecommunication Internet network. In the information society, information violence is able to capture broad sections of society and become a whole industry of influencing the mentality, consciousness and behavior of people. The most subtle variant of information violence is information terrorism, the purpose of which is to weaken and shake the constitutional order of a certain state, as well as the information war against that state. The methodological basis of our study is an integrative approach. We use the concept of cyber-victimization as a heuristic research tool.
