The People’s Deputy from the Opposition Bloc and Medvedchuk’s business partner Taras Kozak became the new owner of ZIK TV channel.
Now there are three TV channels in the possession of Kozak: ZIK, NewsOne, and 112 Ukraine.
Kozak said that on the basis of his three television channels he will create a new media holding called News.
“For me, the purchase of the ZIK TV channel is a sensible and pragmatic step. Today’s broadcasting in Ukraine is ahead of many worldwide channels, due to its mobility, audience interest, and image. Having obtained ZIK, I will be able to build the largest network of information broadcast. And this asset is called media holding News,” said Taras Kozak.
Immediately after the announcement of the new owner’s name, several workers of ZIK have resigned.
