Three Russian TV channels have been banned in Ukraine, reported the website of the National Television and Radio Council.

"Comedy TV”, “Our football" and "Carousel" TV Channels have been put on the prohibited list. "Comedy TV” ceased broadcasting, and therefore removed from the list of approved channels.

The "Our football" and "Carousel" TV channels air the commercial advertising that violates the Ukrainian legislation. In addition, another violation has been committed by "Carousel": a virtual map of Russia was shown on the air of the program "Good morning, kids!" with the annexed Crimea being demonstrated as part of the Russian Federation.

Taking into account all the identified violations of Ukrainian legislation, the National Council decided to remove these foreign TV channels from the list of approved ones, the report says.

Earlier, the Film State Agency of Ukraine denied a state registration for two films and four TV series produced in Russia. Photo: Internet
