EU bans 3 Russian state-owned broadcasters as part of 6th sanction package

On Wednesday, in a significant development, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen told EU lawmakers in Strasbourg, the EU will ban three Russian state-owned broadcasters as part of its sixth sanctions package.

“They will not be allowed to distribute their content anymore in the European Union, in whatever shape or form, be it on cable, via satellite, on the internet or via smartphone apps,” said Ursula von der Leyen.

She called the TV channels “mouthpieces that amplify (Russian President Vladimir) Putin’s lies and propaganda aggressively”.

She went on to add, “We should not give them a stage anymore to spread these lies”.
