Kort

CNN vil slutte å sende til russiske TV-seere. Kanalen mangler en lisens som krever at man er 80 % russisk-eid. Dette er i tråd med Putins politikk. Putin ønsker at russerne ikke får korrigerende informasjon. CNN opprettholder Moskva-kontoret, men kun for et internasjonalt publikum.

 

According to reports, one of the reasons for CNN’s withdrawal from Russia is a ruling passed by a government media watchdog, barring all foreign rebroadcasts of channels without a special licence. CNN does not have the licence which is only available to corporations which are at least 80-percent owned by Russian shareholders.
