The regulation committee of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine recommended to the parliament by its decision to create the temporary investigation committee (TIC) “for investigation of the facts toward the meeting the requirements during the change of the owners of the information TV Channels and provision of the counteraction information influence of the Russian Federation.
Only MPs from the Servant of the People voted for the creation of the commission doing it under the direction of current President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and closely tied with him Ihor Kolomoysky. One of the initiators of the TIC creation is Olga Vasylevska-Smaglyuk who did not try to conceal that she is the representative of Kolomoysky’s group, who as the owner of 1+1 group, is interested in the destroying the competition.
At the stage of the discussion in the committee, the lawmakers from the Opposition platform – For life found out the falsification of the document: Servant of the People Party did not include Olga Vasylevska-Smaglyuk in its offer among members of the commission; however, she was included in the composition of the commission and moreover, she was elected as chairman of the committee in the regulation and it is the violation of the Regulation of the Verkhovna Rada, gross fraud and direct falsification. Obviously, it is the political harassment of 112 Ukraine, NewsOne and ZIK TV channels held on the request of Zelensky and Kolomoysky and it will be held in the future by the dirtiest and illegal methods.
It is possible to access the created the TIC as manipulative and engaged according to the formulation of the name. The words on “counteraction information influence of the Russian Federation” speak for themselves. Why do we need to investigate something if the organizers of the harassment have already decided everything? It is the blatant manipulation and tool of the political pressure not only on the opposition but also on the Security Service of Ukraine.
The documents on the purchase of the TV channels are in the SBU. Last week owner of the TV channels Taras Kozak was questioned twice. All information is provided on the demands of the law enforcers in time, in full and in accordance with the current legislation. That is why the TIC can be treated only as the repressive mechanism, which allow the puppets of Zelensky and Kolomoysky to impose the law enforcers and society their “truth”.
The Opposition platform – For life states: the creation of the TIC is the politically motivated decision; its aim is the clean-up of media space and elimination of the independent TV channels, which tell truth about the situation in Ukraine. The TIC named after Kolomoysky initiated by Kolomoysky people, should become the tool of pressure on the political opponents, create the prosecution mechanism of the journalists and destruction of freedom of speech in the country to please Zelensky and on his request ; it will turn into a whip for management of the law enforcement bodies.
