MOSCOW, June 11. /TASS/. Argentina’s authorities have made a decision to suspend the broadcasting of Russia’s multi-language news channel RT, as follows from a statement on the broadcaster’s website.
"Argentina’s department for radio and television broadcasting has made a decision to suspend all RT newscasts," the statement runs. The decision will take effect in 60 days’ time.
The RT’s round-the-clock newscasts in Spanish in Argentina began in 2014. Argentina’s consent to include the RT in Argentina’s government-run television network was the first instance of a foreign broadcaster getting such an opportunity, the RT’s website says. The channel is available to more than 80% of Argentina’s population.
The RT (Russia Today) is Russia’s international television company. It consists of three round-the-clock news channels broadcasting from Moscow in English, Arabic and Spanish, RT America (goes on the air from a studio in Washington), RT UK (from London), documentary channel RTD (in English and Russian), video news agency RUPTLY, and Internet news portals.
