Avakov addressed the activists blocking the TV channel's premises, saying that law enforcement officers will take appropriate measures against them. He also demanded to stop any provocations around the work of the TV channel.
"The National Police will take a decision within its competence," he wrote.
As it was reported earlier Donbas conflict veterans and men in military uniform gathered around the building of the NewsOne TV, and started the "blockade" of the channel.
It is noted that the blockers are dressed in military uniform. The channel's editors associate this with the fact that this is the only channel that broadcasts the "march for impeachment" of Mikheil Saakashvili.
The formal reason for the blockade was the phrase "Maydan was a coup d'état", said by the owner, Ukrainian MP Murayev on the air of the channel a few days ago. Murayev informed us that he considers what is happening under the canal as "pressure on independent media".
