The de-oligarchization of TV news services in Ukraine is possible. The Deputy Chairman of the Office of President Kyrylo Tymoshenko said in an interview with Interfax-Ukraine.

"I think that the de-oligarchization of TV news services will one day happen in Ukraine. Of course, big business has the right to own channels, but most of them (or almost all) have decided that they should influence their policies. This has to end." Tymoshenko said.

He also noted that the president does not have his own TV channel, "because he is not an oligarchic president .... President does not make agreements on TV channels with the oligarchs or their managers. We do not need that. Our own steps show that we are doing the right thing. People see this and know how to separate truth from fakes. This is our task as a state - to separate information from disinformation."
