"I insist on Prosecutor General's report. He has to respond to our requests as for transparency of ownership of Inter TV channel and the lack of transparency in obtaining of the licenses by the media. I also insist on the adoption of the law #2537 that the "Culture" channel should be established on the basis of Inter TV channel and then the Culture channel should be made public," Kniazhytskyi said.

He also noted that he considered it necessary to establish an investigative commission to determine persons involved in funding of the pro-Russian media, including Inter TV channel and Vesti newspaper.
