Media watchdog to decide on full ban of Russian TV channel in Lithuania

Post by asadkhan122002 on Tue Apr 07, 2015 4:51 pm

Lithuania's Radio and Television Commission will Wednesday decide on issuing a temporary ban on all broadcasts of Russian-language channel RTR Planeta in the country.

"The commission will hold a discussion and decide whether the whole program should be banned temporarily or not. If the decision is to ban it, the commission will have to decide on the timeframe," the commission's chairman Edmundas Vaitekūnas told BNS on Tuesday.
In his words, this would be a new precedent across the European Union, as no European country has so far decided to fully ban broadcasts of an EU-registered TV channel. The channel is registered in Great Britain.
On 22 January, the commission notified having reported possible direct instigation of war and hatred on the RTR broadcast of 18 January, which covered the developments in Ukraine. Several other violations had been registered in earlier broadcasts.
