Ukraine TV lands in hot water over Russian pop songs

Russian singer and lawmaker Iosif Kobzon attends a press conference in Moscow, on October 1, 2013One of Ukraine’s biggest TV networks faced the threat Friday of being taken off air for filling its highly-rated New Year’s Eve show with Russian pop songs beamed live from Moscow. The national security and defence council chief saw it as part of a Kremlin-driven “information war”. Inter’s controlling stake is split between a lawmaker who headed ousted president Viktor Yanukovych’s Moscow-backed administration and a businessman who once traded in Russian gas. Inter’s other main stakeholder is Channel One, a dominant Russian state channel that accuses the Kiev government of being run by “fascists” who rose to power with the help of the US State Department and CIA.
