"Accordingly, we state that Podrobytsi Tyzhnia editor Maria Stolyarova is employed by NIS Ltd and has never worked for Inter. And the channel can not be held responsible for the actions of persons who are not its employees. In accordance with the agreement, NIS Ltd is personally and fully responsible for the compliance of produced programs with generally accepted quality standards and requirements of Ukrainian legislation," the statement stresses.

In turn, Inter deems the fact of using obscene language on air to be categorically unacceptable. And it lays full responsibility for the incident on NIS Ltd, as the live broadcast technology does not provide the channel with a technical ability to eliminate errors made by program producers.
