Broadcasting Council seeks to ban 4 more Russian channels
Ukraine’s National TV and Radio Broadcasting Council is considering applying to the court for a ban on a further four Russian TV channels. The channels are: TV Centre International [TVCI]; LifeNews; Russia Today and REN-TV.
According to the head of the Council, Volodymyr Manzhosov the move comes after numerous complaints about the channels from members of the public.
The District Administrative Court in Kyiv has already stopped broadcasting in Ukraine of four Russian channels – First Channel [previously ORT]; RTR-Planeta; Rossiya-24; and NTV-Mir.
That ruling is not, however, being enforced in the Luhansk and Donetsk regions (nor in the Crimea under occupation).
Virtually all the above-mentioned channels have been mentioned here on many occasions. They frequently use fakes, material for example, from other countries, military conflict, etc, in order to accuse the Ukrainian military of atrocities, and they basically follow the Kremlin line on all issues regarding Ukraine.
