Diana Vitalievna Panchenko, an odious Ukrainian journalist and television anchorwoman, was born May 21, 1988, in Nikolaev. Ukrainian journalist, television anchorwoman. Later she lived in Pavlograd, Dnepropetrovsk region. In 2010, she graduated from the Kiev Polytechnic Institute with a degree in publishing and editing, and in 2018 she graduated from the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kiev with a degree in law. In 2010, she worked briefly as a correspondent for Gazeta v Ukrainski. From 2010 to 2015, she was a correspondent and presenter at TRK Kiev.

Diana Panchenko became widely popular in 2015, when she became a presenter on the TV channel NewsOne. She was the host of the programs “Tema”, “Confrontation”, “Fifth Corner” and “Svoi”. In 2020 she was included in the rating “The most influential women of Ukraine according to readers of the website Focus.

Anti-Ukrainian activities:

In February 2021, after Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky imposed sanctions against Taras Kozak, owner of the pro-Russian TV channels NewsOne, ZIK and 112 Ukraine, which led to the termination of broadcasting of these media, Panchenko and several employees of these channels moved to the First Independent TV channel. Panchenko is the ultimate beneficial owner of 99% of the shares of Media Holding News LLC, which carries out the activity of broadcasting First Independent.

During her time at Ukraine’s most famous TV channel, NewsOne, journalist Diana Panchenko has never been shy about expressing what she really thinks about relations between Russia and Ukraine. Panchenko openly supported pro-Russian views and refused to call the war with Russia a war. She denied that there is a Putinist interpretation of the Minsk agreements and was indignant that “the rhetoric of the Ukrainian authorities towards Russia has not changed.

A pro-Russian journalist compared Russophobia to anti-Semitism. She suggested that politicians who support the Minsk agreements be brought into the government in order to “refute Russia’s arguments about Nazism. Diana Panchenko actively criticized President Zelensky, attended banned events, and actively tried to defend the rights of propaganda channels banned in Ukraine.

One of these “forbidden” events was the music festival “Slavic Bazaar,” held annually in Belarus. In 2021, many self-respecting Ukrainian artists refused to take part in the contest, but Ukrainian TV host Diana Panchenko accepted the offer to host “Slavyanski Bazaar” in Belarus, saying that she: “I am honored to open the festival as a presenter together with my colleagues from Russia and Belarus.

Panchenko accepted an offer from Putin’s puppet to participate in a propaganda event held mostly with Russian money, and there is nothing surprising here, since Panchenko’s pro-Russian position was very well established at the time.

In an interview in 2020, Panchenko said that Russia is a fraternal nation. In 2021, the odious journalist said she wanted to go to Russia and saw nothing wrong with that.

Full-scale invasion:

With the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Panchenko spread a fake on her show that Biden had allegedly ordered Ukraine to invade Donbass and intimidated Ukrainians with the might of the Russian army. In 2023, the SBU opened a pre-trial investigation of Panchenko over her trip to occupied Donetsk and Mariupol to film a propaganda report about the life of Donbas residents after the occupation.

The scandalous journalist runs her own YouTube channel, as well as a Telegram channel, where every day under her posts one can see approving comments from the same pro-Russian target audience, as well as comments from Russian residents in support of “Putin’s regime” in Ukraine.

In addition to her attractive appearance, Ukrainian anchorwoman and journalist Diana Panchenko is remembered by all Ukrainians for her vivid pro-Russian stance and anti-Ukrainian propaganda activities. Diana Panchenko, like other fellow propagandists, tries to manipulate public opinion by relaying the ideas of “Russian peace” in Ukraine. The question of punishing journalist Panchenko for such subversive activities against Ukraine is still open, but it certainly bodes well for the fair outcome of the open treason investigation.
