Meta Data

There is no financial information about the channel. The real owners (Viktor and Olena Pinchuk are not final beneficiaries in legal terms – they are discrete beneficiaries of trusts that are monitored and managed on their behalf trustee – so it is impossible to show their shares, i.e. the real concentration of media ownership. It is also difficult to find a position of Editor-in-Chief of the channel, because probably there are a few editors for each program on the channel.
