International Renaissance Foundation and Inter Media Group Limited signed a memorandum on the creation of the Public Council at the Inter TV Channel during a press conference hosted by Interfax-Ukraine.
“Today we establish this initiative, signing a memorandum on cooperation. Our functions will be rather definite. We’ll monitor, recommend certain new formats, and issue public reports on how information is covered on the TV channel,” Executive Director of the Mass Information Institute Viktoria Siumar said.
According to the memorandum, the experts of the council are to conduct an independent monitoring of the international standards of journalism, as well as cooperate with the employees of the channel, and make proposals to create TV programs to inform the public about important public and political events.
