RAIDER ATTACK ON INDEPENDENT UKRAINIAN TVI CHANNEL

23.04.13


Journalists at Ukraine's independent channel TVi have gone on strike in protest at an apparent Raider Attack.

Earlier today the channel's website had announced a takeover proclaiming Artem Shevchenko as the new General Director and Oleksandr Altman as the new investor.

However the "former owner" of the channel, Konstanyn Kahalovsky, announced today that the channel had become victim of a Raider Attack. He said that there had been no official takeover or change in the channel's personnel. 

Journalists walked out and read out a public statment demanding:

 

  • A reversal of the Raider attack on the station;
  • Journalists the opportunity of appearing live on the channel to openly broadcast their own statement on the latest turn of events;
  • A judicial review on the takevoer;
  • An assurance that the channel will remain impartial and that the elements of censorship already witnessed will not be repeated.
At 1930 hrs today, Artem Shevchenko pulled the plug on a live broadcast and in its stead transmitetd a programme broadcast yesterday.
