The situation with the closure of TV channels and pressure on the opposition in Ukraine is horrible. To change it, it is necessary to tell the world about what is happening as MEP from the UK in 2014-2020 Nathan Gill told to Pershiy Nezalezhniy TV channel.
“The problem we really need to address right now is making world leaders aware of the facts of what is happening in Ukraine. And I think it’s important as well for the people of Ukraine to understand the significance of having a media that is so heavily weighted in one direction. Anybody there’s to raise any opposition voice they could shut down illegally. So, crucial now that the governments of the world, that the UN use its influence to inform the powers that be so that they can put pressure on Zelensky it is required for him to step back,” Nathan Gill said.
“It’s crucial now that the governments of the world, that the UN use its influence to inform the powers that be so that they can put pressure on Zelensky it is required for him to step back. Right now, he feels emboldened, he has closed down quite a few stations and he’s gotten away with it, or he thinks he’s gotten away with it. But the reality is that he will not be in power forever, nor will his party and there will be repercussions one day and we don’t want it to get to that. We just want the people of Ukraine to have freedom of expression and freedom of the press, which is simply what we take for granted in the rest of Europe. And I think it’s crucial that Ukrainians get that. And the only way is now for world leaders to start piling up the pressure against the Zelensky regime” he added.
