President Poroshenko plans to introduce Ukrainian-language quotas for TV

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko says he will soon submit to Parliament a bill on introducing quotas for the Ukrainian-language content on television.

He stated this when speaking at the ceremony of awarding Taras Shevchenko National Prizes on Thursday, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.

“Due to the adopted law [on quotas for the Ukrainian-language content on the radio], we’ve achieved significant results of distributing Ukrainian songs and the Ukrainian language on the radio... Soon, I will offer that the same procedure be introduced on television, where now the presence of the Ukrainian language is unacceptably small,” he said.

At the same time, President Poroshenko reminded that last summer he called on representatives of the television industry to "organize themselves on this issue," but according him, "not everyone heard him”. Therefore, President Poroshenko said that this issues must be considered in Parliament.
