Andrew Malczewski takes up the role from August 18, having previously been director of development and distribution at rival broadcaster TRK (Ukraine Channel).

Jaroslav Paholchuk, executive director of 1+1, said Malczewski’s job included “the restoration of broadcasting in the eastern regions,” following the political upheaval in east Ukraine.

Malczewski will also oversee the development of the distribution of 1+1’s pay channels, “which should be a significant additional source of income for the group,” said Paholchuk.

Chernysh left the company following his election as a member of the National Council on Television & Radio Broadcasting.
