UA:PBC Premieres Regional TV Investigative Programs

May 6 – The UA:Sumy and UA:Cherkasy regional branches of UA:PBC broadcast investigative programs “Under Target” and “Litmus,” revealing the corruption schemes of local authorities in Sumy and Cherkasy regions. These films were rebroadcast by all UA:PBC regional branches on May 8 and 9.

These two investigations were among six investigative reports filmed by the winners of the “Create with Suspilne” competition which UA:PBC held in February 2021. The six winners were UA:Sumy, UA:Cherkasy, UA:Volyn, UA:Mykolayiv, UA:Lviv, and UA:Rivne. The branches generated ideas through a pitching process and outsourced content production to external contractors.

Internews partner Regional Press Development Institute provided legal pre-screening expertise to UA:PBC in the production of the investigative reports.
