  1. I wish them luck, and applaud them for quitting en masse over the sale of Zik to Russian lovers.

      • Yeah, need to find out when they are going online. My mistake, she is already online, and had 1.38K subscribers. Unfortunately, no English subtitles.

        • Let’s hope they fix that. Nice looking woman, but with a haunting sense of melancholy on her fine features.

  2. “The team that left the channel after its sale to Medvedchuk in the hope that an independent, socially oriented media will appear in Ukraine,”
    Such a media is important in every country. But, only a few have them. I wish them much luck and success.
