Ukraine Continues to Pressure Opposition Media

As we reported, Ukraine pressures opposition media in particular it tries to close the TV channel “112”. It is the only channel that affords at least some criticism of the regime in Kiev.
National Council on Television and Radio Broadcasting on September 3 decided to apply to the court to revoke the license of the TV channel “112” to digital broadcasting. http://timer-odessa.net/news/natssovet_annuliruet_litsenziyu_telekanala_112.html
The formal reason for the claim was the fact that the channel “112” allegedly violates the terms of the license, instead of broadcasting entertainment content it broadcasts news programs. Channel’s administration realizing this miss corresponding appealed for many times to the National Council with a request to renew the license according to the new programmatic concept, but Council denied these appeals every time.
