recent weeks, the (Inter) channel’s editorial policy has undergone catastrophic
changes,” the statement of Maidan, a recently registered people’s movement behind EuroMaidan, reads. “Without any objective reasons, the issue of
Maidan has disappeared from the news. If covered, it does so in such a
distorted way that it has nothing to do with the reality.”
In late December, media watchdog Telekritika reported, citing anonymous sources at the media outlet, that two executives and an adviser at Inter resigned over censorship of news coverage.
A source at Inter TV, who asked anonymity because
the person is not authorized to speak publicly, said that Anna
Bezliudnaya, a longtime associate of billionaire Dmytro Firtash, an owner of
more than 70 percent of Inter group, took over management of Inter holding on Dec. 24, and is assembling her
team of managers.
