The Commission of the Federation Council on information policy intends to apply to the regulatory authorities with a proposal to check the activities of German media company Deutsche Welle. If it does not comply with the Russian legislation, a license the company can be revoked. This was stated by Russian Senator Igor Morozov, writes “RIA Novosti”.

According to the Senator, Deutsche Welle “has already crossed all boundaries of journalistic ethics,” and the articles of the company are libelous or defamatory.

Morozov emphasized that it was dedicated to Russian themes, publications appear in the background “attacks” of the governments of many countries on the Russia Today TV channel.

He added that Russia was silent in response to the spreading of Russophobic and anti-Russian sentiment, and now must “go forward.”

June 29, Roskomnadzor threatened to stop the work of the French TV channel France24. The threat to suspend the broadcasting channel received the next day after the French regulator issued a warning to the propaganda broadcaster RT France.
