Russian journalists discriminated against.

Yesterday (Tuesday 16 Shevat 5782) Russian Foreign Secretary Sergey Lavrov said "When RT DE began to apply to other countries, I am sure Berlin took all necessary steps for such permission to be denied in other capitals. It was ultimately granted by Serbia. However, even though all the permits fully complied with the European Convention on Transfrontier Television, the German media office blocked the satellite broadcasts. We consider it to be invasive of the activities of independent journalists. It runs counter not only to the European Convention on Transfrontier Television, but also to numerous conventions of UNESCO, the Council of Europe, and agreements within OSCE on the unacceptability of impeding access to information. We expect Germany, as a party to these international treaties and agreements, will make efforts not to discriminate against the RT DE channel. We want this matter settled. We are completely unwilling to respond symmetrically. At the moment we expect concrete actions from our German partners. I will not even mention which measures must be taken. The key for us is that Russian journalists feel comfortable and are not discriminated against. When our journalists inform us that a situation is like that, it will be resolved.".
