Broadcasting of Russian TV channels in Georgia will be restored

2012-11-01 15:24

In the coming days, cable providers in Tbilisi intend to include in their packages Russian TV channels, broadcasting of which was interrupted during the war in 2008, the VZGLIAD reported.


This information was provided to the edition by several cable TV companies.

"It is known that we are going to broadcast the "First Channel", and possibly the others", said in one of the companies.

Recall, in late October, Georgian Russian-language TV channel PIK appealed for the help to the newly-elected parliament of Georgia, its chairman David Usupashvili, as well as to the U.S. ambassador to Georgia Richard Norland.

The authors of the appeal called the PIK "unique Media project in the history of the Caucasus" and stressed that the primary audience of the channel are ethnic minorities living in Georgia, population of the Caucasus and former Soviet republics, as well as Russian-speaking immigrants in the West.

The channel staff explained the U.S. Ambassador Richard Norland that the PIK was very significant for Georgia and for the entire region.

"We appeal to you to support the fundamental principles of democracy - freedom of speech and expression. We, the journalists, have to ask questions, even if they are "inconvenient". If journalists' questions can cause the closure of TV channel, we can talk about censorship", said in the appeal of the channel staff.
