Two major media outlets in Ukraine are continuing to fight for their survival.
The noose around the independent channel TVi, which has broadcast some of the nation’s best investigative journalism, continues to tighten. It was kicked out of a major cable network in 11 cities on July 20.
At the same time, LB.ua, a political news site, is voicing concerns that a criminal case against them for invasion of privacy is meant to shut down the organization. The site resumed work, however, on July 24 after several days on strike.
