Tkachenko on year of FreeDom TV channel operation: you do important work, perhaps not yet clear to everyone today
KYIV. March 10 (Interfax-Ukraine) – The Russian-language TV channel FreeDom has become at the forefront in the fight against Russian disinformation in the world, Minister of Culture and Information Policy Oleksandr Tkachenko says.
“The year of the FreeDom information project in Russian is 6.5 billion views in digital, more than 76% of them are not from Ukraine, broadcasting via 6 satellites covering the whole of Europe, the European part of Russia, Central Asia, North Africa, the Middle East, and this is a constant hit in YouTube trends in Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Germany, and Uzbekistan. The channel is included in the packages of ten OTT platforms present in more than 700 cable, DTH, IPTV networks in 44 countries of the world, 20 of which were added in a year,” Tkachenko wrote on the Telegram channel.
The minister noted that the project team feels the information needs of the Russian and international audience, which are blocked by censorship, and “provides its viewers with facts and the truth about the war in Ukraine.”
“When we are working on banning Russian channels in the world and, in the end, we are doing this, we must offer our product for delivering information in Russian. Thus, FreeDom has become at the forefront in the fight against Russian disinformation in the world,” he said.
“Thanks to the whole team. You are doing important work, perhaps not yet understood by everyone today, but one that everyone will definitely appreciate in the future,” he summed up.
