KIEV, February 23. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Ministry of Information Policy plans to create an international TV channel, Ukrainian Tomorrow, as counter to Russia’s RT, the head of the ministry, Yuri Stets, has said.
"Within a month we will launch an international broadcasting channel to be called Ukrainian Tomorrow, as opposed to Russia Today /RT/. They’ve got only today, and we have the future," Stets was quoted by the UNN news agency as saying.
The new TV channel will be funded by the state broadcasting company "World Service" Ukrainian Television and Radio, he said.
Besides, the country’s authorities also plan to set up a TV channel covering military issues.
"We have charged ourselves with such a startup on launching this channel and when we launch it, we will give it to the Defence Ministry, this will be a TV channel of Ukraine’s Armed Forces," he said.
Russia’s RT broadcasts in English, Spanish and Arabic in more than 100 countries. The TV channel acquaints an international audience with the Russian viewpoint on world events.
Late last year, Ukraine established the Ministry of Information Policy, dubbed the "ministry of truth" after George Orwell's novel "1984." The ministry has been tasked with forging Ukraine’s image and taking measures to "prevent external influence on the domestic information space.".
