SEVASTOPOL, November 24. /TASS/. The Russian Ministry of Mass Communications will not prohibit providers of cable television in Crimea to broadcast Ukrainian TV programs, deputy head of the ministry Alexey Volin said on Monday. Volin arrived in Sevastopol on a working visit.
"There is no point either in administrative measures or in a tough ban. The audiences should be offered an opportunity of making a choice," he said.
"The overwhelming majority of cable providers in Crimea have changed a packet of services they offer because the ratings of Russian TV channels are higher than the Ukrainian ratings", Volin said, citing his sources.
"We proceed from the assumption that the TV providers are 'mature guys' who should see what their audiences like best," Volin said.
