The Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine will send the request to close the YouTube pages of 112 Ukraine, NewsOne, and ZIK TV channels to YouTube administration.
This was announced by Minister of Culture Oleksandr Tkachenko in Telegram.
“The Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine will send the decision of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine on sanctions against 112 Ukraine, NewsOne and ZIK TV channels to YouTube with a request to close their YouTube pages,” the message says.
On February 2, Volodymyr 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). According to the decree that is eligible since the moment of signature, the TV channels faced sanctions that will be active for five years. These sanctions make the broadcasting process impossible.
