KIEV, July 10. /ITAR-TASS/. The National Television and Radio Broadcasting Council of Ukraine has presented an ultimatum to Ukrainian providers to stop re-transmitting pro-Russian propaganda programmes or be switched off.
“These are Ukrainian channels and providers some of which operate in regions that are not covered by the security operation,” Olga Gerasimyuk, a National Council’s member, said in a live interview with the 112.ua television channel.
“We are giving them 24 hours. Otherwise, they are going to be switched off and will certainly face responsibility,” Gerasimyuk went on to say.
The National Council is going to publish a list of channels on its website soon.
The Council has already considered a possibility of turning to court with a request to ban the re-transmission of several Russian channels in the territory of Ukraine. They include TV-center International, LifeNews, Russia Today and RenTV.
