KIEV, March 19. /TASS/. Ukraine’s National Television and Radio Broadcasting Council has revoked the license of the Ukrainian version of Euronews TV channel.
According to the Zerkalo Nedeli newspaper, the decision was caused by "strongly overpriced content ingestion rights, large debts to Euronews and the inability to influence the content of the channel’s Ukrainian version."
"Currently the debt amounts to about €11 million, while the budget of Ukraine’s National Television Company allocated by the government for 2015 equals €600,000," the company’s deputy head Alexander Kharebin said. He noted that talks with Euronews on debt obligations were under way.
The Ukrainian edition of Euronews was launched in August 2011, and one of its first programs [about the celebration of the first anniversary of Ukraine’s independence] went on the air in the censored version, Zerkalo Nedeli writes.
