TV channel Newsone check the map without Crimea

Телеканал Newsone проверяют из-за карты без Крыма

The TV channel broadcast a map of Europe on which the Peninsula was marked with the same color as Russia.

The national Council on television and radio on Wednesday, November 14, conducts an unscheduled inspection of the TV channel Newsone because of the placement in the broadcast map to the territory of Ukraine without the Crimea Peninsula. About it reports a press-service of the national Council.

It is noted that on 7 November 2018 Newsone TV channel during a live broadcast at 09:53 posted a map of Europe’s “Largest trading partner-buyer” where the color of the symbols of the countries, the territory of the annexed Crimea was separated from the mainland of Ukraine, and at the same time attached to the borders of the Russian Federation.

The corresponding map of the channel was demonstrated in the context of the conversation on the topic: “the European Parliament has asked Merkel to change course on the “Nord stream-2”. A leading television channel called graphics reflecting the position of European trade, however, link to its source was not given.

The national Council stated that the location of the broadcast of such material violates current legislation of Ukraine.

Given this, the national Council decided on the appointment of unscheduled field inspections of the activities of the company news 24 hour (logo Newsone).

We will remind, in October, Council imposed sanctions on NewsOne TV channels and 112 Ukraine “imitation of the discursive practices of the Russian Imperial-chauvinistic propaganda”.

Before it became known that the Radical party Lyashko bought these TV ads, though, and voted for the sanctions against them.
