The European community supports 112 Ukraine TV channel in its fight for the freedom of speech and helps receive exclusive information from the primary sources in Europe.
In order to have an operative communication with European deputies and coverage of the latest international news, the leadership of the channel made a decision to open its press office in Brussels.
“The experienced team of professionals of 112 Ukraine will be the first to provide Ukrainian community with the hot and exclusive news across the borders. The journalists of the 112 Ukraine will tell about all the events in the European Parliament and become a source of information for all Ukrainian media. Opening of the press office in Brussels is another step to the best possible provision of the on-time news to the country. We are also plan to open such press offices in other countries of the world, as Ukrainian community has to know the truth about what is really going on in Europe,” 112 Ukraine general producer Artem Marchevsky said.
As it was reported earlier, the European parliamentarians David Coburn, Jonathan Arnott visited the main office of 112 Ukraine TV channel on October 30. Their purpose was to find out personally the reasons for the scandalous voting on sanctions against 112 Ukraine and NewsOne and to monitor the situation with freedom of speech in Ukraine.
Earlier, Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada urged the country’s National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine to introduce sanctions against several Ukrainian TV channels. 229 MPs supported the draft law No. 9157 on 'Approval of recommendations to introduce personal special economic sanctions and other restrictive measures (sanctions)'.
Thirteen European parliamentarians appealed to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine to revoke the decision on imposing sanctions on 112 Ukraine and NewsOne TV channels. The leaders of 112 Ukraine and NewsOne channels arrived in Brussels personally to talk to the parliamentarians and get their support. The issue of freedom of speech in Ukraine is raised at the international conferences, forums and in the offices of European parliamentarians. The deputies carefully study the situation regarding sanctions against Ukrainian broadcasters, and sign the petition.
