Artyom Sheynin is a Russian propagandist and presenter of talk show “Vremya Pokazhet” (“Time will tell”) on the state-controlled TV Channel One. He made statements in support of the illegal annexation of Crimea and recognition of the independence of the so-called Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics. In his live broadcasts, Sheynin promotes ethnic hatred between Ukrainians and Russians, denies the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, and slanders Putin’s opponents in Russia.
Talking about 24 Feb 2022, the day of the Russian full-scale unjustified military aggression against Ukraine, Sheynin stated that the Russian operation in Ukraine was inevitable and its purpose was to force the Ukrainian authorities to maintain peace.
He is therefore actively supporting actions or policies, which undermine or threaten the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine, as well as stability and security in Ukraine.
