Natsionalni Informatsiini Systemy and the Inter TV channel decided to dismiss Maria Stolyarova. The official ground is not yet clear. However, Stolyarova's dismissal has informally been caused by explicit language on the air and posts published on Facebook two years ago, where she called Maidan protesters "Nazis" and "Orcs".
Russian citizen Maria Stolyarova worked as a war correspondent for Russian REN-TV channel. Having moved in Ukraine, she worked as Chief Editor of Podrobytsi Tyzhnia TV program. According to sources, her employment was initiated by Igor Shuvalov (Current First Deputy Prime Minister of the Cabinet of Ministers of the Russian Federation).
Natsionalni Informatsiini Systemy CEO Oleksandr Pylypets refused to comment on the issue, while Podrobytsi Tyzhnia website has already published the document confirming her dismissal.
