The State Committee for Television and Radio Broadcast triggers introduction of discounts on tariffs on services of the Concern of Radio Broadcast, Radio Communication and Television (KRRT) for state television and radio companies.
According to the statement, in the office of the state committee there was a meeting on September 9 of committee chairman Yurii Plaksiuk with representatives of the National Television Company, National Radio Company, and representatives of KRRT on the debt of the national broadcasters before KRRT for provision of services on transmission of programs and on reasons of the debts and ways to settle the debt.
The state committee has decided to offer to the Transport and Communications Ministry a joint draft law to envisage discounts on tariffs of KRRT for state television and radio companies.
The State Committee for Television and Radio Broadcast has also decided to apply to the Finance Ministry with a proposal to trim the tariffs on services of KRRT proportionally to the share of shortage in finance for the volumes of transmission of state television programs for the period until the draft law is endorsed.
As Ukrainian News earlier reported, Yurii Plaksiuk, chairman of the State Committee for Television and Radio Broadcast, said in August that over UAH 20 million will be paid to KRRT to redeem the debt of the state television and radio companies before November.
