KIEV, April 8. /TASS/. The executives of Ukraine's Inter TV channel have accused the People’s Front party of Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk of political pressure over its reports on corruption.
"The representatives of the party in power, the People’s Front, continue exerting pressure on Inter," a statement posted on the TV channel’s website reads. "The escalation of the latest waves of their statements is usually linked to Inter’s reports on corruption at the highest levels of power," it says.
The representatives of the TV channel note that Inter has been subjected to pressure of the People’s Front not for the first month.
Last winter, the chief of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council, Oleksandr Turchinov, and his allies already called on the country’s National Council of TV and Radio Broadcasting to close Inter.
"They want to intimidate us. And all the independent mass media in Ukraine through the example of Inter," the statement stresses.
Earlier the former head of Ukraine’s state financial inspection, Mykola Gordiyenko, accused Yatsenyuk’s government of corruption schemes estimated at more than $300 million.
A group of people’s deputies demanded that a temporary investigative commission should be set up in Ukraine’s parliament to check into Gordiyenko’s accusations. They said Yatsenyuk should be removed from post during the probe.
