You are watching 112 Україна channel from Ukraine. The channel's category is News and the speaking language is Ukrainian.

112 Ukraine (Ukrainian: 112 Україна) is a private Ukrainian TV channel, which provides 24-hour news coverage. It was banned from broadcasting in Ukraine on 2 February 2021. 112 Ukraine is available on satellites AMOS 2/3, via DVB-T2 network and in packages of all major Ukrainian cable operators. 112 Ukraine is focused on live broadcast.

It is reportedly affiliated with the pro-Russian politician and businessman Viktor Medvedchuk. Since December 2018, the channel has been owned by Taras Kozak, a parliament member of Opposition Platform — For Life who is reportedly an associate of Medvedchuk. The broadcasting of the channel was forbidden on 2 February 2021 by the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine as part of the imposed sanctions on Kozak. The channel was immediately shut down but continued to livestream its content on the internet.

This news channel was launched within 4 months, starting from concept development, equipment supply and office space design up to programming and business optimization solutions. On 26 November 2013, the presentation of 112 Ukraine took place, and on 28 November 2013, the new TV channel appeared on Ukrainian screens. In August 2014, 112 Ukraine had established its own correspondence bureau in Brussels, Belgium. Within the period of its broadcast, 112 Ukraine has organized live linkups with Crimea, Moscow, Vilnius, Lviv and Malaysia. The same way, the 20-hour TV marathon was held while elections to Verkhovna Rada had place.

During the first informal July 2014 meeting with 112 Ukraine representatives Head and Deputies of the National Television and Radio Broadcasting Council claimed that “112 Ukraine” owner Andrey Podschypkov is a nominal owner, despite the documentary proofs. National Council representatives stated that the real owner is one of the former Ministers of the Viktor Yanukovych cabinet, and refused to renew the programming concept of five regional stations of 112 Ukraine television network. In 2015, 112 Ukraine received notice from the National Council for remarks by Russian journalist Maksim Shevchenko, who was interviewed in the studio via Skype during the "Shuster LIVE" talk-show. The president of the European Federation of Journalists stated in February 2015 that the threat of closure targeting 112 Ukraine seemed clearly disproportionate.

In December 2018 member of parliament for Opposition Bloc Taras Kozak acquired the channel and all six TV channels in the "112 Ukraine" group. (In 2019 he was reelected for Opposition Platform — For Life.)

On July 13, 2019, an unidentified assailant fired a grenade at the Kyiv 112 Ukraine office, causing damage to the building.
