You're reading: Appeal from the Journalists Union of TVi to representatives of foreign governments in Ukraine

On
April 23, 2013 on the leadership of TVi was suddenly changed. The new
management’s first step was the removal from further broadcast on
April 23rd of the programme “Today About the Most Important”,
the cancellation of the programme “At Night with Pavlo Sheremet”
and the firing of its host, Pavlo Sheremet. Such actions were treated
by TVi journalists as an act of censorship. In response, the
journalists were forced to declare a strike and to refuse to go on
air.

At
present time the strike has been joined by the editors and
journalists many
programmes
at
the channel, including: “Today” (news programme), “Today
About The Most Important”, “Today. A Digest”, “At
the Night with Pavlo Sheremet,” “A Game of Words and Not
Just”, Alberteinshtein”, “Civilization 2.0”,
“Dear Deputies” and others.

The
preparation of new programmes was also suspended by the editorial
groups of “Exclamation Point” and “Tender News»,
whose journalists conducted their own investigations of the events
leading up to the change in ownership and management of the channel,
as well as the steps by which the change in ownership occurred. The
investigative editorial groups demand that the station’s ownership
end its interference in the investigative process, and also guarantee
that the results of the investigations be aired on TVi.
