MOSCOW, November 11. /TASS/. Effective Russian legislation does not hamper US TV news channel CNN broadcasting in Russian cable TV and satellite networks, the press service of Russian Ministry of Telecommunications and Mass Media said on Tuesday.
“The legislation permits foreign TV news channels to broadcast in Russia, legal forms and ways are provided for this. Representatives of the TV news broadcaster can apply in the Ministry of Telecommunications and Mass Media for consultations to receive required licences. The ministry calls for an opportunity of access to Russian citizens to different sources of information, including foreign ones,” the ministry said.
The Telecommunications Ministry has set up a working group which “provides comfortable conditions for work and development of business of such enterprises within actual reforms of Russian legislation.”
Spokesperson of Turner International, which owns CNN, in London Claudia Coles told TASS on November 10 that US TV news channel CNN stopped its broadcasting in Russian cable TV networks starting from December 31, 2014 over recent amendments in Russian media legislation. The company will keep only a CNN office in Moscow.
