When producer of series and Films at 1 + 1 Media Olena Eremeeva said that Ukrainian language only suits comedies, while soap operas sell better in Russian, it provoked a storm of criticism on social media, with Ukrainians calling her statement shameful and disrespectful. Controversy followed Eremeevas claim made during a presentation on Feb. 4, when she said that, for its new TV season, 1 + 1 Media filmed comedies purely in Ukrainian, while all seven soap operas were do in Russian. Business interests have to be subordinate to national interests and not the other way around. While it is possible that Ms. Eremeeva's statistics are correct, and that Russian-speaking Ukrainian actors and actresses are more comfortable in Russian when playing dramatic roles, they should be working on their tonality like others in their profession. Unless they all want to play the role of Mr. Bean, Ukrainian language has been rat as among the most beautiful languages in the world and, from afar, is often mistake for Italian. Italians have no problem producing some of the finest films-both dramatic and comedy. Neither would Ukrainians if Ms. Eremeeva pay more attention to producing fine dramatic series in Ukrainian than to looking at what sell. If the Ukrainian government had not taken action to enforce Ukrainian language use in the Media but listened to excuses by Media barons, there would not have been as much progress as there has been in countering 300 years of language suppression by Russia. Ms. Eremeeva: produce fine Ukrainian-language dramatic series for Ukrainians and you will find a profitable market for your product. And if they don't sell in Russia, well. Your priority interest should be Ukraine and not the Russian market., Don't look for loopholes. Language is a sensitive topic in Ukraine, as it should be. Far too many years under Russian occupation working to destroy Ukrainian. But citizens need to understand about exporting products well. Russian language created shows can be exported to many countries and can act as a counter against Russian-created programs in Russia. It is helpful to have Ukrainian create shows view in Russia. Production companies need to understand this as well and work to use both languages as is needed. This may mean creating 2 languages. This will have costs, but income should offset these costs. Media companies need to get used to the nation has changed and is no longer under the yoke of Russian Imperialism.
In 1999, after 1 + 1 had been broadcasting on UT-2 24h per day for two years with the appropriate license, Channel sent a claim to the Supreme Court of Ukraine requesting the TV company AITI, who used to hire UT-2 4 hours of broadcasting time earlier before, to give up its license as It had stop its programming for Year. In year 2000, claim was decided for 1 + 1 preference. Channel 1 + 1 has been the subject of continuing criticism during the 2004 presidential election, when it was heavily criticized for twisting information in favor of Viktor Yanukovych. Such behavior was typical for Ukrainian-wide Channel, because all of the media were under heavy pressure from the Administration of President President Kuchma. Furthermore, critics accuse Channel of being part of the Social Democratic Party of Ukraine empire. In late November 2004, several journalists left Channel in protest against this pressure and almost all leading presenters refused to report news. Those actions altogether with similar actions on other channels mark the beginning of the Orange revolution. In October 2006, Alexander Rodnyansky, General Producer of Studio 1 + 1, won hard appeal process in the Supreme Court of Ukraine, after the Court gave ownership of 70 % of the company's shares to Ihor Kolomyyskyy, and as he had claim, in June 2005 there was agreement signed between himself and Rodnyansky, that 70 % of company's shares were sell to Kolomyyskyy. On 2014-2015 New Year night 80 Disco TV program was shown on 1 + 1. Oleg Gazmanov participated in it. He is one of the signatories of a petition in support of Russian actions in Crimea and Eastern Ukraine in 2014. That caused scandal in Ukrainian society. The National Council on Television and Radio of Ukraine promised to review all facts of violation of broadcast regulations by Ukrainian TV and Radio companies on New Year night.
Ukraines only English-language television channel, UATV, has stopped broadcasting. Ukrainian international state broadcaster UATV will cease production of news and satellite broadcasting, starting from January 13 2020, UATV said in a news release. As a result, several English language news presenters bid farewell to their jobs and to their viewers around the world. Its last broadcast was on January 12.
