This was the wording with which the channel cut its cooperation with its Public Council, which lasted for just three months.
It seems that it wasn’t an accident that the word “censorship” crawled into the explanation. It’s pretty obvious that public councils have no power tools for imposing censorship.
But considering that it was a top representative of the authorities – Serhiy Lyovochkin, head of President Viktor Yanukovych’s administration – who became a new co-owner of the channel, the word “censorship” in Inter’s official statement is much easier to explain. In Ukraine, people don’t buy TV channels for business reasons, but we will get back to that later.
