Problem with the pressure on independent TV channels in Ukraine was taken to the highest level of the European Union. Today, MEPs from Great Britain Nathan Gill and Jonathan Arnott passed President of the European Parliament Antonio Tajani the letters signed by hundreds of the members of 112 Ukraine and NewsOne TV channels requesting to protect freedom of speech in Ukraine.
Those letters, which carefully described the situation with the Ukrainian Parliament’s attempt to close the two broadcasters through the National Security and Defense Council, were handed to Gill and Arnott when they visited Kyiv in November.
Now that the MEPs fulfilled the promise they gave to the reporters, they delivered the problem to Antonio Tajani who is the member of the senior leadership of the European Union.
112 Ukraine is an informational and analytical TV channel which broadcasts 18.5 hours per day on air and uses modern technologies to be the first channel to provide the unbiased information on important and interesting events going on in Ukraine and in the world. This is mentioned in the respective statement by Artem Marchevskyi, the Chief Producer, and Yehor Benkendorf, Director General of 112 Ukraine.
