Ban on Russia’s RTR-Planeta broadcasting in Lithuania is act of political censorship - FM

MOSCOW, April 08, /ITAR-TASS/. The suspension of the broadacting of Russia’s RTR-Planeta television channel in Lithuania is another action of political censorship, Konstantin Dolgov, the Russia’s foreign ministry’s envoy for human rights, democracy and the supremacy of law, said on Tuesday.

“The Lithuanian authorities have suspended from April 8 broadcasting of the Russian television channel RTR-Planeta for alleged ‘instigation of interethnic hatred,’” Dolgov wrote in his Twitter blog. “We consider this as another action of political censorship in Lithuania.”

“It is a consequence of the lack of an appropriate reaction from the international community, for instance, from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE),” he noted.
