On the night of July 13, attackers fired on the building of 112 Ukraine TV channel.

Miraculously no one was hurt.

Unfortunately, this terrorist act is a natural continuation of the policy of the authorities.

The authorities, who inject hysteria and fear.

The atmosphere of fear is extremely negative for the channel team. We are threatened with violence. Nationalists threaten to come to our office, as they had repeatedly and with impunity come under the building of the Inter and NewsOne channels.

For this week, we did not received any condemnation of the radicals, as well as no investigation of threats from law enforcement officers was launched.

As a result, the inaction of the authorities led to the fact that tonight the channel was fired from a grenade launcher. And this is no longer just a violation of freedom of speech. This is terrorism that occurs in the center of Ukraine.

We demand from the president, the government, and especially from the security forces:

To condemn the use of force and threats against journalists;

Condemn the terrorist act against 112 Ukraine.

And the most important thing.

We demand to guarantee the safety of 112 Ukraine and employees.
