Disproof

On his official page on Facebook Petro Poroshenko wrote: "Any pressure on the media, and especially their blocking, is unacceptable. It is also unacceptable to try to justify the actions of the aggressor country against Ukraine, following Russian propaganda's lead, including in such matters as the evaluation of the Revolution of Dignity. Sometimes such actions are a reaction to the inaction of those agencies that must react promptly. The National Council for Television and Radio Broadcasting should more effectively regulate the media space". https://www.facebook.com/petroporoshenko/posts/1156032147864509
