As it was reported before, 1+1 TV channel has stopped the broadcast of TV program Shuster LIVE. At 1+1 the refusal to broadcast was explained by reluctance to heat up the already unstable situation in Ukraine.

According to the talk show host Savik Shuster, it was agreed between the owner of the channel and Presidential Administration.

"He (Poroshenko) will not give his life for this program to be. This is a fact. Because we had to be broadcasted over 1+1 channel as usual, we had a contract with the 1+1 .
