After the liquidation of TV-6, not-for-profit pension fund LUKoil-Garant, which is a subsidiary of Russia's oil giant LUKoil, is going to take part in a tender for receiving a new license for broadcasting on TV-6's frequency. This information was announced by Leonid Fedun, chairman of the fund's board of directors, at a press conference in Moscow today. He noted chances are high that LUKoil-Garant will receive the license. Fedun announced that they consider the current TV-6 team, which is headed by Yevgeny Kiselyov, to be professional and they are going to propose this team to take part in the establishment of a new TV-6 channel. However, this partnership will become possible only in the event the TV channel is profitable and it receives investments, Fedun stressed.
The strike was defensive in nature and came in response to three attacks on the US military in February
