“Taking into account instructions from the Ukrainian National Security and Defence Council of March 6, 2014 and its resolution of March 1, 2014 on urgent measures on ensuring national security, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, the Ukrainian national council on television and radio broadcasting calls of providers of the programme services to temporarily refrain from rebroadcasting through their networks television channels Vesti, Russia-24, ORT and RTR Planeta until their progammes are adapted to the requirement of the Ukrainian legislation. The state must stabilize the situation in all regions and ensure interests of all communities,” the council said in a statement posted on its official website.
