Security Service of Ukraine Head Valeriy Khoroshkovsky, the owner of U.A. Inter Media Group, is ready to sell his media business.
He said this on the Ukraina television channel.
"I am ready, if you want me to, to make a sensational statement. I am ready today to sell my business. Buy it," he said.
Speaking during a TV talk show on the television channel Verkhovna Rada deputy Vyacheslav Kyrylenko from the faction of the Our Ukraine - People's Self-Defense Bloc urged Khoroshkovsky to choose between the media business and the post in the Security Service of Ukraine.
Khoroshkovsky responded that he had made his choice.
As Ukrainian News earlier reported, the U.A. Inter Media Group indirectly owns 61% of the shares of the Ukrainian Independent TV Corporation (Inter TV channel), 100% of the TV Studio Information Service (NTN TV channel), 90% in Music-TV (Enter Music TV Channel), television channels K1, K2, Megasport, and other media assets.
The Kyiv Post is disabling its online comment section due to an increase in trolls, violent comments and other personal attacks. Other news organizations worldwide have taken similar steps for the same reasons. The Kyiv Post regrets having to take this action. The newspaper believes in a robust public debate, but the discussion must be constructive and intelligent. For the time being, the Kyiv Post will allow comments on its moderated Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/kyivpost/.
The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow.
Thank you from the Kyiv Post.
