Parliamentary TV-channel «RADA» (Ukrainian: Парламентський телеканал «РАДА») is an official television channel of the Ukrainian parliament (Verkhovna Rada).

It shows live broadcasts of the parliament's meetings, and others programs related to the law-making process. The channel was created in 1998 and is financed from the state budget.[2]

Controversies[edit]

According to UDAR MP Iryna Herashchenko in December 2013 the channel ignored the pro-European rallies of Euromaidan while broadcasting mostly speeches and statements made by government members and rallies held by Party of Regions (and thus not covering the activities of all parliamentary factions and MPs, including opposition and independent deputies).[3]
