All accounts of Suspilne broadcasting company have been arrested, the broadcasting is blocked. This prevents sending representatives of Ukraine for the Eurovision this year.
By a court ruling, the Ukraininan channel must pay debt more than 10 million hryvna court fee in favor of the joint-stock company Euronews, in the proceedings, which was opened on February 18 by the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine.

The cooperation of the former state national television company of Ukraine with Euronews began in 2010 even before the creation of the Public Broadcaster. Subsequently, funding was allocated from the budget to pay license fees under an agreement to launch a Ukrainian-language version of Euronews, which led to the emergence of debt.

The public broadcasting inherited this duty as the assignee of all the rights and obligations of the former Ukrainian national television company which stopped work.

According to Suspilne’s website, the seizure of accounts cancels preparations for the broadcast of the Olympics 2020, blocks Ukraine’s participation in Eurovision 2020, stops the new projects, in particular, the launch of a new public studio on the air of the “UA: Pershyi”.

In the near future, the arrest will lead to a complete halt to the activities of the television and radio company. Blocked the ability to pay for the national broadcaster channels “UA: Pershyi”, “UA: Culture”, all regional channels of Suspilny, a digital platform and three radio channels “UA: Ukrainian News”, “UA: Radio Promo” and “UA: Radio Culture “.

Following a court decision, all funds received from the budget will be immediately transferred from the accounts of Public Broadcasting company to Euronews. As a result, from the planned and statutory budget for 2020, Suspilne will receive less than 300 million hryvna and the broadcasting’s annual plan will be disrupted.

Suspilne already applied and continues to apply to the relevant ministries so that they initiate the allocation of funds from the state budget for urgent repayment of the debts of the former state company, as well as EUR 1.6 million of the executive fee, which broadcasting company should paid it.
