Meta Data

Since there are no regulations for online media registration, it is extremely difficult to identify ownership structure of a particular media outlet. In our research, we managed to link Zolota seredyna and Obozrevatel through data provided in the Unified Public Register of Court Decisions. The research revealed that in all cases concerning Obozrevatel, Zolotaya Seredyna performed as the defendant on the Obozrevatel’s side. Followed by a research in the Public Register of Legal Entities and Individual Entrepreneurs, we could trace that Obozrevatel belongs to Svitlana Brodska and sons of her husband – Rostyslav and Yuri.
In a private conversation with MOM researchers through Facebook, Mykhailo Brodsky confirmed that his family has been owning Obozrevatel for 12 years. He also said that they owned “Vykka” TV-channel in Cherkassy as well.
