Today, September 21, the National Corps picketed the offices of the anti-Ukrainian TV channels NewsOne, 112 Ukraine and ZIK, which belong to Medvedchuk.
These media are the Kremlin’s Russian information weapon in the hybrid war against Ukraine. Medvedchuk’s TV channels disorient Ukrainians, impose on them a Russian vision of events in Ukraine and the world, condemn our defenders and justify the actions of the aggressor country. It is because of systematic and long-term information propaganda in the east and south of Ukraine that we lost Donetsk, Luhansk and Crimea in 2014.
According to the head of the Kyiv branch of the National Corps, Serhiy Tamarin, the nationalists want to draw the attention of society and the authorities to the danger of the operation of pro-Russian TV channels and Russian business in Ukraine.
“Military exercises Kavkaz-2020 have started in Russia today. After similar exercises the war in Georgia began. Russia is currently building military capabilities and training on its border with Ukraine. Meanwhile, in Ukraine, the media pool of Medvedchuk’s channels, such as ZIK, NewsOne, 112, is preparing an information platform for the Russian offensive, justifying Russian aggression and talking about the need for friendship with Russia,” he said.
In turn, the spokesman of the National Corps Oleksa Byk noted that the current government is turning a blind eye to the work of Kremlin agencies in Ukraine.
“As long as Medvedchuk and his TV channels in Ukraine operate freely, Ukraine will be in danger. The information space is monopolized and occupied by our ideological enemies who work in the interests of Russia. If the government led by Zelensky indulges in the work of these mass disinformation, it is working in the interests of Russia,” he stressed.
