Cabinet of Ministers would provide security and financial support of Suspilne TV (National Public Broadcasting Company of Ukraine, - ed.), but the organization has to show certain effectiveness of its activity, as Deputy Head of President’s Office Kyrylo Tymoshenko said, as Interfax-Ukraine reported.
“We met with the leadership of Suspline, with donors who helped it. We guarantee to fund from Cabinet of Ministers for the public broadcasting. But they will have key performance indicators – we realize that by the feedback of the donors,” Tymoshenko said.
Deputy Head of Presidential Office noted that they would help Suspilne to get rid of unnecessary staff and buildings, and the current leadership if it shows low effectiveness.
Though some might say that state can not have such influence on Suspilne TV, according to Tymoshenko, Cabinet of Ministers is the main shareholder, so they have a right to demand effectiveness.
“We don’t want to reduce funding, we want to provide it and see the results,” Tymoshenko stressed.
