As we reported earlier, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky stated that there was no threat to the freedom of speech and media business in the country.

On February 2, Zelensky signed a decree on sanctions against 112 Ukraine, NewsONE, and ZiK TV channels.

By this decree, he enforced the decision of the National Security and Defense Council on sanctions on the cancellation of the broadcasting licenses of the TV channels belonging to Taras Kozak (112 Ukraine, NewsOne, ZIK).

These sanctions make the broadcasting process for these channels impossible.
