Journalists of the TV channels illegally closed by President Volodymyr Zelensky have united and created a new TV channel - Pershiy Nezalezhniy (First Independent). A group of journalists who previously worked on 112 Ukraine, NewsOne and ZIK channels became the founders of the new medium.

The new TV channel will broadcast on the ASTRA-4A satellite, 5° E. It will also be available on the largest cable networks of the service providers Volia, Triolan and other operators. The TV channel's webcast is available on pnk.tv website.

The faces of Pershiy Nezalezhniy will be all the figures that are iconic and familiar to the viewer of the TV channels closed by Zelensky. The list includes Diana Panchenko, Pavlo Kuzheev, Vyacheslav Pikhovshek, Vasyl Apasov, Yuriy Bibik, Andriy Lashch, Rostyslav Sukhachov and others.

“President Zelensky’s attempt to shut the mouths of the media was initially a failure. We are in the 21st century, it is impossible to close the mouths of everyone. People see what is happening in the country: tariffs are not decreasing; there’s still no peace in Donbas; and there are unprofessional authorities. How can the media not show it? It is a betrayal of the viewer, a complete devaluation of journalism as such. Therefore, Pershiy Nezalezhniy will broadcast everything that Ukraine lives with, even if the authorities do not like it,” TV presenter Diana Panchenko said.

“We have created a new TV channel so that Ukrainians could find out the truth about what is happening in Ukraine. We will objectively show everything that is happening in our country,” TV presenter Pavlo Kuzheev said.

“Personal preferences of politicians should not affect the information field of the country. We are journalists, we must convey information to the people about what kind of country we are living in. We want one thing - to work for the good of Ukraine within the framework of the Constitution and laws. We are waiting for the representatives of all political forces on air of our TV channel, we are ready to give the floor to representatives of all political parties. We stand for a free and independent Ukraine. Freedom of speech is a guarantee of the democratic values of the European state,” TV presenter Rostyslav Sukhachov added.

President of the TV channel Yehor Benkendorf said that the team of Pershiy Nezalezhniy is made up of experienced journalists who have proven their high level of professionalism and willingness to work even in difficult conditions.

"We have been working under pressure from the authorities since the launch of 112 Ukraine TV channel. We have not deviated from our path and remain committed to a comprehensive presentation of information. As before, both representatives of the authorities and the opposition will get the floor on our TV channel. We will work objectively, regardless of possible pressure, and let the viewer decide which channel to watch and which journalists to trust," Yehor Benkendorf said.

Pershiy Nezalezhniy is grateful to a number of Ukrainian companies for the provided support, including financial support for the newly created TV channel. We hope that other companies will join this support in the future.
