In media news, a British state-owned bank has reportedly cut services to the Russian-backed broadcaster RT. The station, which relies on state funds from Moscow, decried the move as a form of a political censorship. Margarita Simonyan is RT’s editor-in-chief.
Margarita Simonyan: “For us, it is absolutely obvious that it’s all politically motivated. And it is yet another step—now a serious one—by Britain to shut us up so that we stop broadcasting, stop telling what we are telling, so that the orchestrated choir of mainstream media, which pushes for a single narrative, would not be interrupted, and viewers won’t get distracted and won’t listen to another point of view.”
