The 112 Ukraine TV channel does not cease to be under pressure from the authorities, and today the depriving of the television broadcasting licenses is already considered by the court. In addition, 112 Ukraine is constantly forced to fend off attempts to manipulate the issue of its acquisition by one or other odious businessman.
As a result, the pressure on the television is no longer regarded as the pressure on freedom of speech, but as a subject of political battles. Therefore, 112 Ukraine refers cautiously to the new round of the scandal surrounding the selling of the channel, as the aim of its initiators is still unknown.
The 112 Ukraine TV channel continues to be an independent and objective source of information. It is not a particular political line repeater neither the authorities nor the opposition. Any speaker has the right to hold the speech in our studio, regardless of his or her political affiliation. The TV channel is not controlled by the President's Administration, the government, or any parliamentary or extra-parliamentary political force. 112 Ukraine is not a party to negotiations for the sale or commutation of its editorial policy with any of the country's politicians. In order to guarantee the editorial independence, the owner of the TV channel Andrei Podschipkov distanced himself from the influence on the 112 Ukraine information policies and transferred his corporate rights to the hands of management staff. Over the past two years the channel has received offers for the acquisition by many representatives of business and political forces of the country, but none of the possible variants of the transaction has been reached, the subject of the negotiations is a commercial secret of the TV channel.
The channel will inform its audience of any pressure attempts, as repeatedly did it in the past and continues to the present.
