For 25 years his show – king gave an interview more than 50 thousand people – including policies on a global scale. Perhaps king is not the scathing journalist in history, but the credibility of millions of audience definitely deserves respect.
Rate the level of freedom of speech in Ukraine on a 10-point scale: I Think about 7 points. On the one hand, almost all major media outlets are privately owned (and therefore reflect the position of the owner), plus there is journalistic self-censorship, which further limits the freedom of speech. On the other hand, the choice of TV channels/Newspapers/websites in the Ukraine is large and socially important information in any case becomes public.
How often do You watch TV at home?: I watch TV almost daily, but not for long. Basically, this is a brief view of news in the morning and the evening. Soap operas, talk shows, talent shows are not my “telemenyu”.

If You have discovered a new planet, how would You call her?: Mangup. In honor of the famous Crimean places of Power Mangup-Kale. Springs and caves, ruins of an ancient fortress, the monastery… I was raised twice on Mangup – energy there is amazing! Now this place is unavailable to me due to the annexation of the Peninsula, but it is definitely worthy of perpetuation in the annals of astronomy.
Imagine that You came to visit the President of America asking you to show Ukraine. Where would You invite him to the tour?: The President of America I definitely would have invited on a fishing trip somewhere on the Dnieper near Cherkasy 🙂 But seriously, any guests I would like to show you a different Ukraine, more perfect than now.
