The opinions of Internet users were divided: some claim a violation of the right to freedom of speech, the other is called the closure of Radio the first step process of cleansing the media landscape of the country.
The latter view was expressed, in particular, the well-known anticorruption Karl Volokh.
“I’m not a Deputy, and I don’t need a rating. I’m not a scientist, and I don’t need customers. So I think, first, almost two years ago put on “ignore” a group of Ukrainian mass media, are financed from sources openly anti-Ukrainian, ceasing to appear at them in the air. Recently, however, saw the statement by the group of experts also expressed the view that self-respecting specialists should not cooperate with such media. I hope that the closure of Radio “Vesti” is the first step in the process, he wrote.
According to Volokh, the Radio News should be followed by TV channel NewsOne and some other media including paper and online publications.

However, he is surprised by the reaction of the journalists who instead of defending his position, decided to resign. “That or some very clever language that is understandable not just all or trash. Ie, if tomorrow the government wants to squeeze them, say an apartment, they should say “we will not fight with their country” and humbly to move out to live on the heating duct?”, he writes.
Ksenia Vitryak also mocks the decision of the journalists. “Heroes!) Although it would seem – still will not work!)) And that’s it. Asceticism. Sacrifice for the sake of Ideas. Voluntary. Collective. Victory through defeat. Death and Rebirth. Transformation. Scorpio. It is Russian!)) Orthodox pulse) So I love him)”, she wrote.
