Goldberry LLC

Goldberry LLC

Espreso TV is a Ukrainian Information television channel. It started broadcasting during Euromaidan in 2013 solely via satellite without a license, which later caused procedural problems for it in acquiring one. Those problems were resolved by the end of 2014, when the channel was granted a license for digital broadcasting. “Goldberry” LLC belongs solely to “Astra Finance” company which in turn belongs to “Novyny-TV” (“News-TV”) LLC (70%) and Larysa Knyazhytska (30%), the wife of Mykola Knyazhytsky, Member of the Parliament of Ukraine of 7th and 8th convocations (2012-2014 and 2014-2019). However, 99% of “Novyny-TV” (“News-TV”) belongs to Larysa Knyajitska as well, while 1% belongs to Vadym Denysenko, Member of the Parliament, from “Petro Poroshenko Bloc”. Though, the shareholding structure illustrates that in 2014 Vadym Denysenko passed his 1% to the “Moris Ukraine “Law Company”, LLC.

Until recently, 99% of Espreso TV belonged to Larysa Knyazhytska, the wife of Mykola Knyazhytsky. As of August 2017 Arseniy Yatsenyuk, former prime minister, and Inna Avakova, the wife of the current interior minister, have acquired 30 and 40 percent of LLC "Goldberry" respectively leaving Ms Knyazhitska with 30 percent of shares of Espreso TV.
