TV and radio decided not to make twice a day to put the national anthem

ТВ и радио передумали заставлять дважды в день ставить гимн

The bill proposes to oblige to broadcast the anthem in the morning and at night.

The Committee of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on state construction, regional policy and local self-government has recommended to deputies to reject the bill on amendments to the article of the law On the State Anthem of Ukraine with regards to daily broadcast.

As reported in the information Department of the office of Parliament, the draft law proposes to oblige the broadcaster to broadcast a daily anthem in the morning at six o’clock and in the evening in twenty-four hours.

According to deputies, it’s not really justified because not all media outlets in Ukraine are public and broadcast on socio-political issues. Some of them are purely entertainment television or radio programmes (in particular, music, sports, etc).

Mandatory singing of the national anthem in the broadcasts of such broadcasters be unnatural and inappropriate. Therefore, the establishment of absolute duty for all broadcasters to broadcast the national Anthem of Ukraine is impractical, said the Committee.

As reported Корреспондент.netin July the State Committee for television and radio broadcasting of Ukraine supported the initiative about introduction to the music of the anthem of Ukraine.
