World-wide Russian-language channel to be created in Ukraine to 'struggle for minds' - Presidential Office deputy head
A world-wide Russian-language channel will be created in Ukraine to strengthen the position of the state in the informational struggle, said Deputy Head of the Presidential Office of Ukraine Kyrylo Tymoshenko in an interview with Interfax-Ukraine.
According to him, such a channel is needed so that Ukraine could fight both for the minds of Ukrainians in the occupied territories of Donbas and Crimea, and for the minds of Russians in the territory of the Russian Federation. "We have developed a launch option for the Ukrainian Russian-language channel, with which we will be able to cover the Russian-speaking population all over the world," said Tymoshenko.
According to him, the team of President Volodymyr Zelensky wants it to be a state channel. "But we are negotiating with private channels about the handover of rights to use their coolest content," Tymoshenko said.
