Previously, it became known that Olena Trybushna would lead the information section of the TV channel. "Our goal is to objectively talk about everything that happens here, realizing that for almost six years these people (in the occupied territories, - 112 International) have consumed the content of Russian television channels ... We want to dispel their myths and the fears associated with us, we want them to understand that they are heard here and want to solve their problems, and so we want to start a dialogue with them," she said, commenting on the TV channel's mission.

The information and entertainment TV channel will be broadcasting via the UATV channel. It will be able to cover 80 percent of the occupied territory.
