Lithuania court upholds ban on Russian TV channel

The Lithuania Supreme Administrative Court has upheld a decision from the national broadcast regulator banning the re-transmission of Russian TV channel RTR Planeta in Lithuania for a year. This followed an appeal from the cable operator Init.

Earlier this February, the regulator banned the channel on suspicion of instigating hate and war in its programming. The regulator imposed a EUR 150,000 fine on Init for the re-transmission of the channel after the ban.
