KIEV, February 18. /TASS/. The Ukrainian National Council on television and radio broadcasts has reprimanded "Inter" television channel on Wednesday for demonstration of films during New Year holidays with the participation of Russian actors, who presumably "assumed an anti-Ukrainian position".
On January 15 "Inter" channel was already reprimanded by the Ukrainian Council for demonstration of entertaining programs on New Year's Eve in which Russian pop singers performed.
On Wednesday the Council also reprimanded "112 Ukraine" channel for violations found out during the demonstration of "Shuster Live" talk show on February 13. Chairman of the Ukrainian National Council on television and radio broadcasts Yuri Artyomenko has criticized the talk show for presumed "elements of crime" found in statements made by Russian journalist Maxim Shevchenko, which are "punished by the Ukrainian Criminal Code (Article 161) for intentional activity aimed at inciting racial hatred, ethnic and religious strife."
Last July the same national council banned the retranslation of 14 Russian TV channels on the territory of Ukraine. In August, the Ukrainian Interior minister signed a resolution, ordering to supervise whether the reprimanded TV channels complied with the ban, and threatened criminal prosecution to anyone who defied the ban.
