2012-11-14 14:12

Public broadcaster of Georgia has terminated all agreements with the TV company PIK. This was announced today by the CEO of Georgian Public television Gia Chanturia, the Vestnik Kavkaza reported.


This decision is motivated by the fact that the state budget for 2013 does not include funds for the third channel public TV, through which satellite broadcasting of the PIK is being carried out. The decision was supported by the majority of the Board of Trustees of the public broadcaster.

"I have learned that the budget for 2013 does not include additional funds for the third channel of the public broadcaster. Accordingly, the public broadcaster is unable to announce a tender for relevant services in 2013 in connection with the broadcasting to the Russian-speaking population abroad Georgia. Broadcaster is going to create a software product for the Russian-speaking population living in Georgia", Gia Chanturia said.

Recall, in late October Georgian Russian-language TV channel PIK, functioning under the order of the Georgian Public Television, 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 was ethnic minorities living in Georgia, population of the Caucasus and former Soviet republics, as well as Russian-speaking immigrants in the West.
