Liovochkin’s Team Leaves Inter TV channel due to censorship

13.01.2014, 10:15

The director of the «National Informational Systems» (NIS) Nazim Bedirov, the executive director Lavrentiy Malazonia and Igor Shuvalov, who are said to be connected to the head of the Presidential Administration Sergiy Liovochkin, decided to stop their cooperation with the Inter TV channel. This was reported by Telekrytyka with reference to the sources that work at the TV channel.

Malazonia and Bedirov do not comment on their decision but their colleagues believe they did not want to make censored news.

The Inter TV channel’s press service does not comment their resignation but informs that the NIS, which produces «Novyny», «Podrobnosti» and «Podrobnosti Nedeli» will be chaired by Anton Nikitin, who is currently an editor-in-chief and a member of the Inter’s board.

Some TV journalists on their Facebook pages speculate that in the nearest future the informational policy would change at all national TV channels; according to them, it is allegedly already forbidden to use the word ‘EuroMaidan’ and this is allegedly connected with the crackdown policy the new official in charge of the humanitarian policy in the Presidential Administration Yuriy Chmyr is practicing.
