The State Tax Administration in Kyiv is intending in January-March 2012 to perform checks on three channels of the Inter media group, according to a press release from the administration.
The tax administration will check on Ukrainian Independent TV Corporation (Inter TV channel), as well as Mega and K2 channels.
In addition, Poverkhnost Sport-TV Ltd. will be inspected in the period.
As reported, Ukrainian Independent TV Corporation is part of U.A. Inter Media Group Ltd., which indirectly owns 61% in the company. The media group, whose major shareholder is Head of the Security Service of Ukraine Valeriy Khoroshkovsky, also owns 90% in Kino-TV (Enter Film TV channel), 90% in Music TV (Enter Music), 60% in Television Information Service (NTN), 100% in the TV channels of K1, K2, Megasport, and the Ukrainian News agency. It also has other media assets in Ukraine and abroad.
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.
