Ukrainian Canadian Congress satisfied with May 30, 2011, decision to suspend
reorganization of the Ukrainian World Service radio edition.
The Chairman of the State Committee on Television and Radio Jury Plaksiuk suspended the planned reorganization of the Ukrainian version of World Service radio of Ukraine (RUI).
Recall that on May 25, Ukrainian World Congress asked the Ukrainian authorities to rescind the decision to cease Ukrainian language edition of RUI, which is an important source of information for the Diaspora.
The corresponding letter was sent on May 26 to President Viktor Yanukovych, Prime Minister Mykola Azarov, Parliament Speaker Volodymyr Lytvyn, Chairman of the State Committee George Plaksiuk.
In this important instance, the Diaspora played a key role in preserving Ukrainian programming.
