Chairman of the Board of the National Public Broadcasting Company of Ukraine Zurab Alasania said that the approximate cost of the debate on the NSC “Olimpiyskiy” between presidential candidates Volodymyr Zelensky and Petro Poroshenko would cost about 6 million hryvnias.
According to him, earlier in the media was announced an approximate amount of 1 million, but after all have been calculated, the cost of probable debate at the stadium has increased to almost UAH 6 million.
“The main thing is to rent a stadium, it has to be rented for at least two days in order to arrange everything and build a scene there. Then, depending on the location of the scenes, to mount the screens, lighting, sound and so on. These all can hit 6 million,” Alasania said.
However, he noted that if it is proved that the debate at the stadium is a political agitation, then TV channels for broadcasting must be paid according to the prices.
“These are separate amounts that I can not count. The CEC has these prices, they are unchangeable and in addition, it could be surplus 6 million,” Alasania said.
