CHISINAU, April 13 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian embassy in Moldova is concerned over the closure of the Russian-language channel NIT.
“This decision disagrees with the international human rights provisions,” the embassy said. “NIT was one of the few sources of information for Russian-speaking residents of Moldova, and the decision to close it may weaken the position of the Russian language in Moldova.”
The Moldovan Television and Radio Coordination Council stripped NIT of the license last week for “the selective support to one party – the opposition Party of Communists”. The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, the European Union and a number of local public organizations criticized the decision. The Russian embassy expressed the hope that the republican authorities would review the ruling.
