You're reading: Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council calls for review of Russian TV broadcast licensing conditions

The Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) has called on the National Television and Radio Broadcasting Council to meet and review the licensing conditions for the broadcast in Ukraine of Russian television channels.

“Given that the media war in Ukraine has intensified quite seriously,
we, in fulfillment of the NSDC resolution, are appealing to the members
of the National Television and Radio Broadcasting Council with a
request to meet and discuss the current situation in the Ukrainian
information space, which is posing a threat to national security,” NSDC
Deputy Secretary Viktoria Siumar said at a briefing in Kyiv on Thursday.

“It is the Council who deals with cable operators’ licenses and
regulates the packages they can transmit on their cable networks.
Obviously, given the violation by the Russian channels of a number of
Ukrainian laws, these packages and relevant licensing conditions can be
reviewed,” she said.

Under the current conditions, all members of the National Council
have a chance to meet and make an appropriate decision, Siumar said.

Many Ukrainian cable networks contain Russian television channels
such as “Channel 1. Global Network,” “RTR-Planet,” “TVC International,”
“NTV World,” and a number of educational, sports and entertainment
channels.
