Channel 5

Channel 5 first appeared on air in September 2003 as a news channel. The Channel is formed by two legal entities: LLC “TV Broadcasting Company "NBM”, that has a license to broadcast under the logo “5 Channel”, and LLC "TV Broadcasting Company “Expres Inform” that owns a license for satellite broadcasting under the logo “5+”. TRK NBM was founded by PJSC “Prime Assets Capital” where the final beneficiary is Petro Poroshenko, the fifth and current President of Ukraine. Thus, 90% of TRK Expres-Inform belongs to Poroshenko through Prime Assets Capital, and only 10% are owned by Vladyslav Liasovsky through LLC “Prestige Group”. Furthermore, TRK NBM has a subsidiary company TRK NBM-Zaporizhzhia. LLC Prestige Group and its director Oleksandr Adamenko are founders of LLC "TV Broadcasting Company “Expres Inform TV”, which specialises in TV production. Both companies, owners of 5 Channel (“Prime Assets Capital” and “Prestige Group”), are also founders of the TV channel called “TRT” (Truskavets).
