The National Council on Television and Radio Broadcasting revoked digital broadcasting licenses from 112 Ukraine TV Channel today, on September 26.
After a two-hour debate session, the Council voted unanimously.
Earlier, the National Council couldn't take because of the court ruling. However, the court overturned their own decision after direct pressure on the judges by the authorities, which was repeatedly reported in the media.
"112 Ukraine" pleads the government not to be afraid of free media and to ensure the right of TV viewers to choose by themselves which TV channel to watch.
The actions of the National Council are illegal. Authority of three members of the National Council expired in July 2019. Ukraine's Verkhovna Rada de facto recognized this fact. Taking any decisions, they abuse their power, and the National Council itself is not legitimate. We take up the decision of the National Council as an illegal one of an illegitimate government authority.
Nevertheless, the 112 Ukraine TV Channel, 112.ua and 112.international sites will continue their work.
Watch 112 Ukraine from satellite, cable networks and on YouTube.
