The sixth court of appeal has lifted the ban on the National Council for TV and Radio Broadcasting to extend or annul the license of the news-based 112 Ukraine TV. Thus, the court has rejected the TV channel's appeal, lawyer Vasyl Smetana said.

He suggested that the National Council was "likely to refuse" to re-register the license.

In August, the National Council carried out an unscheduled check of the TV channel over its intention to show Oliver Stone's pro-Russian propaganda film "Revealing Ukraine". A scandal broke out and the screening was cancelled, which did not stop the check.

The 112 channel brand is based on six TV and radio companies: 112 TV, Vybor TV, Partner TV, Novyy Format, Ariadna TV and Leader TV.
