Russia's NTV-Mir TV Channel suspended in Lithuania
Lithuania has suspended the re-broadcasting of Russia's TV channel RTR-Planeta in cable networks for three months.
The Vilnius administrative court read out the decision earlier on Monday.
The parliament-based Radio and Television Commission, which controls the activity of television and radio broadcasters, had requested the suspension.
The re-broadcasting of Russia's Television Channel NVT-Mir was paused for three months two weeks ago due to the showing of a documentary devoted to the 1991 events in Vilnius. The documentary stirred up political disputes in Lithuania.
