On April 26, the Supreme Court refused a citizen not tied with 112 Ukraine, NewsOne and ZiK TV channels in the recognition of the order of the president on the implementation of sanctions as illegal. This case has no connection to the legal protection of TV channels and it is a manipulative tool of the authorities to disappoint society and give false legality to illicit introduction of sanctions.
Earlier, TV channels have already stated that lawsuits filed by some citizens are a tool of the authorities to get favorable decisions in controlled court proceedings. Thus, the authorities strive for spread of manipulative titles of Ukrainian mass media on this topic to give false legality to the order on sanctions.
For example, some media published fake news with the next title: “The Supreme Court does not consider sanctions against Medvedchuk’s TV channels as violation of rights”.
In other words, we can see the result of this manipulative technology of the authorities in action.
We will explain. The Administrative proceeding code provides directly that only people against whom the case was open obtain the right to appeal the order of the president. Thus, the Supreme Court, following the law, pronounces judgment on the refusal lawsuits of people who do not face sanctions. In other words, these refusals are formal.
However, less aware audience is forced to read numerous pro-government fakes without understanding what happened.
As we reported, the Supreme Court has opened proceedings on several lawsuits from TV channels, which were sanctioned by a decision of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine enacted by a presidential decree of February 2. The proceedings have already been opened on three lawsuits filed by "Novyny 24 hours" LLC (Newsone), "Lider-TV" LLC and "Novyi Format TV" LLC (112 Ukraine TV channel).
Besides, the Supreme Court demands from the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC), the President’s Office and the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) to provide evidence for imposing of sanctions as the court stated in the decision on the approval of the petition of Evirer LTD Company on demanding of all documents that became the basis for the introduction of the sanctions against the company.
