Ukrainian journalists should talk about their problems, in particular about the violation of freedom of speech, Europe. Miroslav Radatsovsky, the MEP from Slovakia said this, during a round table in Strasbourg regarding media freedom in Ukraine.

"You should work. You talk a lot and work a little. Europe needs to know about your problems. You must understand that there are people in Europe who do not want to know your problems. They need to be told as is: who a patriot who is not. And when they want to know, you have to inform people who want to be objective," - he said.

Radatsovsky also noted that he will demand coverage of problems with pressure on freedom of speech in Ukraine.

“I think that I will demand it to speak objectively in parliament at the commission. I have already given several questions to the commission,” - MEP added.

As it was reported earlier, on September 26 the National council on questions of television and radio broadcasting deprived TV channel "112 Ukraine" of digital licenses for broadcasting.

The channel continues to broadcast and is available to its viewers on satellite, cable and the Internet.

The decision of the National Council has already been condemned in the European Parliament, who promised to pass this information to European officials.

The journalists of the 112 Ukraine, NewsOne and ZIK TV channels held a rally of solidarity against censorship. Three TV channels go off the air for 30 minutes.

The move is an answer to the Ukrainian authorities and their attempts to oppress freedom of speech in Ukraine.
