VILNIUS - The Radio and Television Commission of Lithuania (LRTK) on Wednesday banned Russia's broadcaster RT over its ties to Dmitry Kiselyov, a Kremlin propagandist on the European Union's black list.
"Taking into account the Foreign Ministry's recommendation, LRTK made the decision to suspend the retransmission of five RT programs in the territory of the Republic of Lithuania," Mantas Martisius, the chairman of the media watchdog, told BNS.
The decision will take effect on Thursday, he said.
