In Ukraine from 13 October will cease to deduct the products of Ukrainian TV channels irrespective of the language of performance to quota of 75% of the Ukrainian language. About this Saturday reports 112 Ukraina.

Noted that a year ago began to operate the law on the quota of 75% of the Ukrainian language on the Central TV channels during the week and periods of time 7:00-18:00 and 18:00-22:00.

The document stipulated that during the first year of the law, all programmes, parts thereof, wholly or partially created or funded by the Ukrainian broadcaster will be credited to the share in the state language. This provision is aimed at supporting domestic producers.

However, the national Council on television and radio since October 13, after the completion of the transition period, begins to monitor the TV channels regarding their compliance with the language of quotas, the first results of which will be presented in six weeks.
