How to disable advertising in Skype?

Как отключить рекламу в Skype?

When you communicate with friends, family or colleagues, the last thing you want to see is advertising.

Before buying Skype by Microsoft, you could simply disable advertising in options to get rid of unnecessary spam interfering with the conversation.

Nevertheless, the policy of monetization was added by the banner, which hangs almost to the entire Skype chat window.

It would have been so intrusive if this banner did not appear at the time of the video call on the full screen.
