Poroshenko apparently cancels sanctions against TVi
According to Mykola Knyzhytsky, TVi General Director, the Minister of the Economy, Petro Poroshenko has cancelled the sanctions announced on Wednesday against the beleaguered independent TV channel TVi. The information has not been confirmed or denied by the Ministry.
As reported, the Kyiv State Administration had issued penalties over an allegedly outstanding debt of 2 thousand USD which meant that the channel could only pay any bills in foreign currency by each time obtaining separate permission from the Ministry of the Economy.
The well-known journalist and presenter of a programme on TVi, Mustafa Nayem reported the move on Wednesday saying that the penalty referred to a debt to the company Associated Press Television News which has long been repaid.
