18.10.2016 - Russian Embassy statement on the closure of RT bank accounts

This openly political decision follows many similar acts of harassment and intimidation against Russian news outlets in UK (others affected include Rossiya Segodnya; RT itself was subjected to a plethora of unsubstantiated Ofcom investigations). This policy amounts to squeezing alternative voices out of UK media space, which testifies to the HM Government׳s inability to defend its case on issues where we happen to differ with appropriate means.
