The Ukrainian regulator National Council has added Multimania TV to the list of prohibited foreign channels in the country.
In a statement, it says that the channel fails to meet the requirements of the European Convention on Transfrontier Television and Ukrainian legislation.
Furthermore, its site gives no indication that it is a Latvian TV channel. Instead, it contains only Russian approvals, including a certificate from the regulator Roskomnadzor.
Separately, the National Council has added Sea TV, Fight Channel World HD and Tele 5 to the list of channels permitted for cable distribution in Ukraine.
Sea TV is a Latvian entertainment channel, while Fight Channel World HD is a sports channel licensed in Croatia. Tele 5 is an Italian film and entertainment channel.
