    Russian Planeta to re-enter Ukraine

    Russian Planeta to re-enter Ukraine

    Russia’s VGTRK has created a special version of its RTR-Planeta aimed solely at the Ukrainian market.

    According to Kyiv Post, VGTRK has reassured Ukrainian authorities that the channel does not carry advertising, but if shown in the future will be in accordance with local regulations, which do not permit commercials for alcohol.

    The creation of the new channel is a direct response to a demand by the Ukrainian Television and Radio Broadcasting Council, first announced in November 2008, for cable operators to stop carrying Russian TV channels that do not comply with Ukrainian legislation.

    RTR-Planeta produces special version for Ukraine

    A separate version of TV channel RTR-Planeta broadcast via the W4 satellite has been created specially for Ukrainian TV viewers, the press service of the National Television and Radio Broadcasting Council reported yesterday. At the end of September the council received a relevant letter from the All-Russian State Television and Radio Company (VGTRK) that specified this and other measures taken to return TV channel RTR-Planeta to the Ukrainian cable television network.

    VGTRK Company assured the Ukrainian side that the Ukrainian version of RTR-Planeta doesn’t contain advertisements or advertising segments, and thus there is no advertising of alcohol. But if advertising appears, then the leadership of the television company would follow the corresponding laws of Ukraine.

    Moreover, VGTRK Company is obliged to fulfill all of the directions of the Ukrainian Television and Radio Broadcasting Council concerning the broadcasting on days of mourning and on the day of memory for famine victims.

    From 1 November the Ukrainian Television and Radio Broadcasting Council demanded that cable operators remove Russian TV channels not adapted to the Ukrainian legislation from their broadcasting lists. The decision affected, in particular, RTR-Planeta, Channel One Global Network and TV Center.

    The broadcasting of the Russian Channel One was resumed as the TV Company declared its intention to legalize its activity on the territory of Ukraine.
