KIEV, August 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s National Council for Television and Radio Broadcasting on Thursday obligated providers to take Euronews Russian language service off air.

It explained the measure by the fact that the Ukrainian-and Russian-language versions of Euronews TV channel were available in Ukraine.

The council’s deputy chairman, Olga Gerasiumyuk, said the Russian-language version “is a propaganda tool” but the Ukrainian-language version would continue broadcasting.

Earlier, the Council banned the broadcasting of five Russian television channels, saying their “content does not correspond to Ukrainian law on television”. Among them the Council named RBK-TV, RTR-Planeta, NTV-Mir, Rossiya 24 and TV Tsentr International.
