The National Council concerning television and broadcasting at meeting made on February 18 the decision to warn providers of program service concerning illegality of translation of programs of Broadcasting Company "Kiev" in all settlements of Ukraine, except the city of Kiev.
The basis for channel translation in cable networks across Ukraine is the license of the company for a satellite broadcasting. The satellite license of Broadcasting Company "Kiev" was cancelled by the National Council. The reason of annulment was that the company lost the form of the satellite license and in due time didn't address in the National Council concerning issue of the duplicate. Therefore, license documents of Broadcasting Company "Kiev" don't answer conditions of translation of programs in cable networks.
"The National Council considers due поинформировать providers of program service that Broadcasting Company "Kiev" has no license for a satellite broadcasting, and therefore can't be broadcast in other settlements, except the city of Kiev where the company has the radio license for a broadcasting", - the first deputy chairman of the National Council Igor Kurus commented.
