“The Rada channel is a channel that has to perform a single function which is  to broadcast live sittings of the Verkhovna Rada, sittings of committees, briefings of MPs and heads of factions. This is a function of the Rada channel. So, now the conciliatory council, where the faction leaders were present, decided to return to the format of broadcasts, which actually gave an opportunity to all factions, all deputies, and resume a special format of work only with live broadcasts, " said Yulia Tymoshenko.

LB reported, a new studio of the Rada TV channel appeared on the sidelines of the Verkhovna Rada the day before, and journalists who previously worked for 112 Ukraine, ZIK and Iceland were among its presenters. Oleksiy Semenov became the creative director of the broadcaster, and Natalia Yastrubenko became the editor-in-chief.
