Kolesnichenko said that he did not gather 1 million signatures on closing Shuster’s program
The Regional Party deputy Kolesnichenko is aware of one million signatures on closing ‘Shuster Live’ program, but this did someone else. Kolesnichenko himself does not want to raise this question, because he would be immediately accused of the freedom of speech attack.
The people deputy from the Regional Party Vadim Kolesnichenko denied the application of the 'Shuster Live' program host on his involvement in the signatures collecting for this television program closure, informs the Regional Party press service.
‘I was surprised to find out that I’m allegedly collecting signatures for the ban of “Shuster Live” program. Indeed, I was asked why the state TV channel broadcasts the programs which discredit the government, power and break down the Ukrainian state during one of the internet conferences two weeks ago. I replied that I know that one million signatures for this program closing were gathered in the country. However, we cannot raise this question, because in that case we will be immediately accused of censorship and freedom of speech attack’, - informed Kolesnichenko.
‘And such presenter as Savik Shuster, who tears words out of the context and raise the program rating by manipulating the facts, at least, unseemly’ – said the Regional Party deputy.
We want to remind you, that Shuster announced that Kolesnichenko gathered one million signatures for closing ‘Shuster Live’ program on Friday, June 1.
