Pershiy Nezalezhniy TV channel was disconnected from broadcasting an hour after its start- it is the agony of Ukrainian authorities. This was stated by Opposition Platform - For Life party MP Andriy Lesik on the air of Pershiy Nezalezhniy TV channel.
“You know, while I was on the way to thw studio, it was literally half an hour, and I read the comments on Facebook that we were turned off. This is not unambiguous information, but I see a sufficient number of people watching on YouTube," the politician said.
He noted that the disconnection of the new channel Pershiy Nezalezhniy from the air is the agony of the authorities.
"And what is happening is already agony. They do not need to be afraid - we will hold out and this... The Ukrainian people will be the winner here. Indeed, in fact, they are not fighting against the channel now, but against the citizens of Ukraine. You have 100 journalists who have became co-founders of the channel. You can't shut your mouths to each of them and you can't impose sanctions. It's like they are desperate," Lesik emphasized.
Today journalists of the three channels ZIK, NEWSONE, and 112 Ukraine, illegally closed by President Volodymyr Zelensky, have united to create a new TV channel, Pershiy Nezalezhniy (First Independent), which will inform viewers about what is happening in the country.
Soon, the viewers will be able to watch the channel on TV screens, and not only on YouTube. Webcast of the TV channel is available on the website pnk.tv.
The new TV channel will broadcast on ASTRA-4A satellite, 5°E. It can also be found on the largest cable networks of the service providers Volia, Triolan and other operators. 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.
