Smear campaign on Akhmetov TV-Channel against anticorruption activists and experts continues

On July 7, 2017 the national TV channel “Ukraina” released a second 30 minutes documentary film “Following the grant eaters”.  

Specifically, the program covers Vitaliy Shabunin and Oleksandra Ustinova from AntAC, as well as Sergiy Leshchenko, Mustafa Nayem, Andriy Gerus (the independent energy expert, who heavily criticizes the government).

Independent media council already conducted assessment of the first edition of the  program “Following the grant-eaters” aired at the national TV channel “Ukraina” in spring this year.  

The council concluded that in this program the TV channel violated the standards of accuracy, reliability and balance of information

AntAC submitted a law suit against “Ukraina” TV channel. The first court hearing in the case is scheduled for September 5, 2017.

AntAC considers the second edition of the program as continuation of a broad well-planned campaign aimed to discredit AntAC team members as well as other activists and pro-reform officials, who are criticizing the government.

We have  collected  facts of smear campaign against AntAC, named  key accusations against our organization and provided officially our rebuttals to them.
