It is noted that Yatsenyuk has allegedly accepted a bribe for appointing Volodymyr Ishchuk as general director of Broadcasting, Radiocommunications and Television (BRT) Concern.

Kaplin also argues that Ishchuk has been involved in sabotage regarding the resumption of Ukrainian TV channels broadcasting in Donbas.

As UNIAN reported earlier, in early August, the Cabinet of Ministers appointed Volodymyr Ishchuk as general director of BRT Concern.

UNIAN memo. BRT Concern is a state-owned operator of TV and radio broadcasting, radio and satellite communications. BRT Concern provides complete maintenance and operations of telecommunications networks, satellite and terrestrial broadcast networks.
