From the public's point of view, the Russian citizen, who worked in Ukraine for notorious Viktor Medvedchuk and then for Serhii Liovochkin and Dmytro Firtash, and the masterminded Inter's anti-Ukrainian policy must be banished from the country.
The activists also demanded to investigate outreach activities of Russian journalist Leonid Muraviov in Ukraine as well as previously deported Inter TV channel's Managing Editor Maria Stolyarova.
"We see that this is not an isolated case. It takes place systematically. And when it occurs systematically, then it is not a staff problem, but the one of the business entity which currently covers a large part of Ukraine's information space for some reason. That is why the Security Service must take the appropriate measures and show at least some activity. It is necessary to initiate a criminal case and investigate it," Vіlnі Liudy network co-coordinator Serhii Puzan said.
As reported earlier, ATO veterans dissatisfied with Inter TV channel's policy held a rally outside one of the channel's offices in Kyiv Sept. 4. Subsequently, the rally turned into a fight and unknown individuals set the TV channel's office on fire. A scuffle took place between the TV channel's security guards and protesters after that. The police detained six protesters.
Journalists for Espresso.TV published findings of the journalistic investigation unveiling relations between Inter TV channel's top executives and the Russian authorities and propagandists.
President Petro Poroshenko instructed Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko to personally monitor the investigation into the situation that had developed around Inter TV channel.
People's Front faction members as well as Interior Minister Arsen Avakov previously demanded the SBU to banish Shuvalov from Ukraine.
