Ukrainian World Congress calls on Turkey to facilitate broadcasting of Ukrainian TV channels

The Ukrainian diaspora calls on Ankara to facilitate broadcasting of Ukrainian TV channels on the territory of Turkey.

Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) President Eugene Czolij discussed this issue during his visit to Turkey, the UWC press service reports.

"Eugene Czolij appealed to the governing authorities of Turkey to include Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar programs in the air of the main TRT television channel and facilitate the broadcasting of Ukrainian television channels," the statement reads.

As noted, the UWC President also urged Turkey to abandon the Turkish Stream pipeline “taking into account the repeated use of gas by the Russian Federation as a political weapon.”

Czolij also emphasized the importance of the issuance of a Tomos of Autocephaly to the Orthodox Church in Ukraine.

In addition, political and military support for Ukraine was discussed, “Eugene Czolij called upon Turkey, a NATO member, to support the strengthening of ties between NATO and Ukraine, and furthering of the Euro-Atlantic aspirations of Ukraine until it achieves full NATO membership,” the UWC press service reports.
