Vasyl Golovanov, NewsOne Chief Producer

Ukraine’s Security Service (SBU) questioned NewsOne Chief Producer Vasyl Golovanov over failed telethon with the Russian TV channel, as he said on air of 112 Ukraine.

According to Golovanov, he got two subpoenas earlier – one from Prosecutor General Office and another from SBU.

“As a person who is ready to cooperate and who said on air that he was not going to hide anywhere arrived at SBU at 11 am,” NewsOne Chief Producer said.

Golovanov refused from commenting on the questioning. He said he signed a non-disclosure agreement.

At the same time, the Chief Producer supposed it would not be his last interrogation.

“As a prediction – indeed, I think there will be more. In general, I believe that mentioning this case in public, mentioning my name in public, political parties using my photos without me allowing this, and saw, they do, - all this is political pressure on the freedom of speech as one of the basis of democracy. I think it is unacceptable,” he stated.
