` Three-Month Suspension by Lithuania and Latvia of Broadcasts by RTR-Planeta is a Political Decision ‘

#AceWorldNews – MOSCOW – April 07 – (Interfax) – The three-month suspension by Lithuania and Latvia of broadcasts to their territory from Russian television channel RTR-Planeta is “indisputably a political decision that is beyond the common sense of journalism,” said the head of international relations at Russian state television and radio company VGTRK, Pyotr Fyodorov.

Fyodorov told the Vesti.ru website that the decision is questionable from a legal point of view because RTR-Planeta holds a European Union license for broadcasting in the Baltic countries.

“Here is an attempt, accusing Russia of one-sided coverage of events, to do the same by only leaving access to information from Ukrainian media or from the media of those Baltic states, whose sympathies are obvious to us,” he said.
