You're reading: Independent journalism under siege

 A criminal investigation has been initiated
against the director of the company, Mykola Knyazhytsky, over what the tax
authorities allege was tax evasion.

Since the
amount in question is Hr 3 million, the charges could carry a prison sentence,
though most are inclined to see this as an attempt to silence a channel known
for its critical stance. 

It would be
difficult to call TVi fully balanced, but it has consistently allowed different
voices to be heard, and has given coverage to protests, high-profile scandals,
government corruption deals and socio-political issues. These are all either
presented in manipulative fashion or assiduously avoided on the increasingly
sycophantic national television channels.
