`Poroshenko Calls on Kiev to Lay Mines at TV Stations to Block Russian Channels’

“Today, we need to protect TV towers and lay mines there if necessary. Anyway, it is impossible to allow our people to be exposed to the Russian propaganda because that is creating a big problem,” Poroshenko said in a live interview with Ukraine’s ICTV television channel.


Poroshenko thanked all Ukrainian television channels for an initiative to remove all TV series and films about the Russian army from air.


Poroshenko earlier told media he had provided assistance to Euromaidan protesters in Kiev. “Euromaidan” is the unofficial name for anti-government protests in Ukraine that started when President Viktor Yanukovych refused to sign an association agreement with the European Union last year to study the deal more thoroughly.
