On September 16, the Sixth Court of Appeal of Kyiv overruled the appeal of 112 Ukraine TV channel, thus lifting the National Council's ban on pursuing action to renew or revoke the channel's license.

As UNIAN reported earlier, TV channel ZIK was sold to Taras Kozak, who is considered an ally of Viktor Medvedchuk, Vladimir Putin's major political operative in Ukraine.

Thus, Kozak's media assets include three channels: Channel 112 Ukraine, NewsOne, and ZIK.
