MOSCOW, March 26. /ITAR-TASS/. Lithuania’s attempts to suspend retransmission of the NTV-Mir (World) television channel are an example of the toughest censorship, Russia’s Foreign Ministry says.
“The Lithuanian authorities have asked the Vilnius Court to order to stop broadcasting NTV-Mir TV Channel for three months due to the showing of the documentary ‘Sentenced. Trap for Alfa Group’ on the 1991 events in Vilnius,” the Russian Foreign Ministry's Commissioner for Human Rights, Democracy and the Supremacy of Law Konstantin Dolgov wrote on the Twitter microblog.
“The film does not coincide with Vilnius’ official version. This runs counter to Lithuania’s aspirations for democracy and the rule of law,” he said.
