Parliament offers to cancel broadcasting licenses of 112 Ukraine, NewsOne TV channels

21:56, 5 October 2018

According to the document adopted earlier in the Parliament, the licenses of 112 Ukraine and NewsOne TV channels might be cancelled. 112 Ukraine considers these sanctions as suppression of freedom of speech and a threat to the independent work of Ukrainian media.

The TV channel has already applied to international organizations for help. The appeals have been sent to the European Council President Donald Tusk, the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini and Council of Europe Secretary General Thorbjørn Jagland.

112 Ukraine has been experiencing pressure since it was launched. The channel considers the regulation on sanctions against broadcasting by the parliament unacceptable.
