` Lativa has Suspended Broadcasting of Russia’s Rossiya RTR Television for Three Months ‘

#AceWorldNews – RIGA – April 15 – Latvia has suspended broadcasting Russia’s Rossiya RTR television channel for three months, the BBC said.

An “administration process” was reportedly launched against the First Baltic Channel, and Rossiya 24 TV channel was labelled as “creating problems” over their coverage of the events in Ukraine. Latvian, Lithuanian and Estonian public broadcasters are considering a plan to set up a new Russian-language TV channel.

Chairman of the Russian Presidential Human Rights Council Mikhail Fedotov had said the ban on Russian TV channels in Latvia and Lithuania would violate the rights of television audience.
