“Freedom of expression is something we stand for in this country And the menu for broadcasters’ action is very high. After an analysis, We have found that RT is inappropriate and not suitable for obtaining emission clearance in the UKThe British Media Regulator (Ofcom) insisted.RT is not currently broadcast in the UK due to sanctions imposed by the European Union since the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine in late February.
“As a result, we have revoked RT’s UK broadcasting license,” said Melanie Daves, head of Ofcom.
Oh The Russian government-funded RT television channel has already responded And Offcom accuses it of being an instrument of the British government.
“Although Ofcom was a well-built facade of freedom for the British people and the international regulatory community, it was nothing more than a government tool.I bow to their desire to repress the media, ”RT editor-in-chief Anna Belkina told Reuters.
According to Belkina, “Offcom misrepresented that RT is irrelevant, ignoring RT’s gossipy record over the years, and stating purely political reasons directly linked to the situation in Ukraine, still entirely related to RT’s operations, structure, management and editorial production.” In doing so, it robbed the British public of access to information.
