Today, on January 28, at opening of a new boiler room in the Ship area the Nikolaev mayor Vladimir Chaika commented on a situation with closing of the Russian TV channels in Ukraine, and in particular in Nikolaev. We will remind that on the Nikolaev cable TV channel "Norma" two Russian TV channels - ORT and RTR were closed.
"Why - that is considered that the Russian channels don't give an objective assessment, - the mayor declared. - After all broadcast on "the 5th channel" "the Voice of America"? And after all each person an individual and itself can give the assessment. We that are closed from a world information field? ".
Vladimir Chaika was revolted by that fact that when everywhere across Ukraine switch-off the Russian channels, on our channels constantly show violence and horror films. "It is perceived by the Ukrainian power? And after all such on the Russian TV channels isn't present", - the mayor declared.
Vladimir Chaika also flayed to the director of Broadcasting Company "Norm - the Center" Oleg Baranov. "I stand on a position that Rams apologized", - the mayor declared, he explained that Oleg Baranov's all services declared that it everything was made by the Executive Committee of the City Soviet of People's Deputies. "Why to dump from itself responsibility? - the mayor questioned. - We had recently no so many calls by other questions, as on a cable television. I will talk to Oleg Baranov as so with the city don't arrive".
The mayor declared that at tomorrow's session of the City Council he will tell that so shouldn't be in the state.
We will remind that as reported the Nikolaev regional committee of KPU, tomorrow, on January 29, picketing of session of city council will take place, "on which questions on shutdown of the Russian cable TV channels will be considered".
Well, well, apparently, tomorrow's session of city council promises to be quite rough …
