“The current situation in the east of Ukraine is, in particular, due to dependent media” – Sadovyi

Creation of a strong public broadcaster and development of independent media are among the priorities of the candidate for the post of President of Ukraine Andriy Sadovyi.

He stated this at a meeting with media representatives in Cherkasy.

“The East problem is due to the dominance of the oligarchic influence, among other things. Because very often they convey false information through their media and manipulate people,” said Andriy Sadovyi.

He cites the example of the British BBC – a public broadcaster, which is financed by taxpayers’ money and is the most popular among all media.

“Therefore, building public broadcasting is extremely important to me. The public broadcasting must not only have the largest coverage area, but also high ratings in Ukraine,” said the politician.
