Employees of the closed TV channels ZIK, NewsOne and 112 Ukraine have a lot of questions, but people want answers to at least five of them.
The head of the youth wing of the Opposition Platform - For Life party Artem Marchevsky said this on NewsOne TV channel.
According to him, even the police are in solidarity with the employees of the media holding, and do not understand why the TV channels were closed in violation of the law. Marchevsky added that journalists, cameramen and channel presenters went on a protest demanding to talk to the president and ask him questions.
"We have a lot of questions: about the closure of channels, and utility bills, and tariffs. We want to talk to the president. Come out to us, there will be no provocations. We will ask only five questions. It will be enough for us" Marchevsky said.
He expressed conviction that common sense and the law would still win and TV channels would defend their right to freedom of speech.
Over 400 journalists from 112 Ukraine, NewsOne and ZIK TV channels, which were closed in early February, are holding a protest against the restriction of freedom of speech in the country. More than a thousand viewers of TV channels also came to support the journalists.
The journalists are holding posters “Kim Jong-Ze,” “Ze against the truth,” “The end of freedom of speech,” “Not war, but the channels,” and many others.
The film crews of the TV channels tried to enter the event, but the guards did not let them in, arguing that “they are not on the lists.”
