You're reading: Rally in support of TVi Channel held in Kyiv

A rally in support of TVi Channel is held in Kyiv on Saturday, according to an Interfax-Ukraine correspondent.

About 1,000 people with flags with the channel logo and the wording
“TVi – the last frontier of freedom” gathered at St. Michael’s Square.

“They are trying to destroy our channel. But I think that with your
help we will not allow this,” TVi Channel Director Mykola Kniazhytsky
said, when opening the meeting.

He said that the channel staff asked politicians today not to come to
the square with political flags, but at the same time he expressed
gratitude to the deputies who came to the meeting for support.

Thus, according to Kniazhytsky, the action was supported by the
Batkivschyna United Opposition, the UDAR Party of Vitali Klitschko, the
Svoboda Party as their representatives came to the rally.

The participants in the rally required to cease the repression of
independent mass media and pressure on journalists, resume the
broadcasting of TVi Channel in full in Ukrainian regions.

The people also demanded the resignation of the members of the National Television and Radio Broadcasting Council.

Ukrainian musical group Tartak appeared on the stage in support of the rally before the meeting.
