European Parliament collects signatures in support of repressed Ukrainian TV channels

18:49, 12 October 2018

MPs of the European Parliament launched the campaign to collect signatures in PACE, aiming to support 112 Ukraine and NewsOne TV channels. The media might fall under sanctions of the Ukrainian government, if the respective authorities uphold the request recently filed by the Ukrainian Parliament.

Artem Marchevsky, General Producer of 112 Ukraine said this during the Friday discussion at the European Parliament. As the parties talked through human rights and freedom of speech as the basic rights in Ukraine and the EU, Marchevsky stressed that these freedoms should be protected by all possible means – which is why the TV channel’s management inform the European lawmakers on this matter.
