The national Council on television and radio today (February 7) held a regular meeting.
On it by voting against NEWSONE approved new sanctions in the form of a fine of 93 000 hryvnias (attention!) the statements in the broadcast the guests of the channel.
The meeting was held in violation of the Law of Ukraine “On television and radio broadcasting”.
The party against which it is planned to apply sanctions, that is, the channel NEWSONE was supposed to attend the meeting and have the opportunity to protect their own position.
But somehow the representatives of NEWSONE no one not invited to the meeting but was not informed that it is preparing (not to mention the fact that to warn the defendant the law should be in writing).
This is really good. No sooner had the meeting of the national Council on television and radio broadcasting will end – on his official website had already appeared the verdict on the application of penalties in relation to NEWSONE.
Here it was said that during the meeting the representative of the TV channel allegedly heard, and the decision on sanctions was approved unanimously. You wonder how it was possible to hear those who weren’t there? We – very.
It’s simple – the publication is a blatant indication that the news about the decision of the national Council, in the best traditions of Soviet propaganda, was written before the vote. Just a few minutes, officials realized that he had embarrassed and quickly removed the publication, and a little later appeared here such here a corrected version.
All these facts, as well as other cases when a national Council was organized unscheduled inspections and issued warnings point to systematic pressure on NEWSONE.
I would like to draw attention to the fact that the channel NEWSONE gives you the right to Express different opinions and will continue to fight for freedom of speech in Ukraine. We work to ensure that you know the truth.
