National TV Council to consider New Year’s broadcast on Inter on January 15


The National Council on Television and Radio Broadcasting will consider on January 15 the compliance by the Inter television channel with Ukrainian legislation during a New Year’s broadcast.
This was stated by the chairman of the council, Yuriy Artemenko, according to Telekritika.
“The agenda has not currently been fully formed, but given a wide response due to a New Year’s broadcast on the Inter TV channel, members of the national council will obviously consider the results of monitoring of New Year’s broadcasts on national channels,” Artemenko said.
As reported, the Inter television channel on the New Year’s Eve broadcasted a recording of the show involving, in particular, a member of the Russian State Duma, singer Iosif Kobzon, who was declared a persona non grata in Ukraine, as well as other Russian “stars” who publicly expressed support for separatists in eastern Ukraine – Valeriya, Oleg Gazmanov, and Nikolai Baskov.
After that, Information Policy Minister Yuriy Stets and Ukrainian presidential press secretary Sviatoslav Tseholko called for the introduction of sanctions against Ukrainian channels that broadcast performances by artists who were banned from entering Ukraine.
National Security and Defense Council Secretary Oleksandr Turchynov said that the Inter channel should be stripped of its license for anti-Ukrainian activities.
Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister and Culture Minister Viacheslav Kyrylenko, in turn, said that the Cabinet of Ministers would propose closing channels that promote Russian propaganda.
