In a statement, it said that the registration successfully concludes an intensive process of work on legal, structural and administrative acts and reforms.
EBU DG Ingrid Deltenre said: “This is a big step forward in the reform of Ukrainian media, which has been considered by the Ukrainian government as a corner stone for overall reforms in the country.
“We sincerely hope that the government will continue to support the development of public service media in Ukraine as a genuine service to the citizens and will ensure its appropriate funding as provided in the Law and as assured by the government at the adoption of the budget for 2017.”
NPTRCU will host the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest in May.
According to Deltenre, “this will send an important message to the citizens of Ukraine and the whole Europe about the role of public service media in reinforcing our European values in society”.
