Crimean Tatar channels ATR and Lale, as well as radio station Meydan, has appealed to Russian President Vladimir Putin, as the Roskomnadzor has denied a license for Crimean Tatar media in Crimea.
ATR-- the only Crimean Tatar television channel in the world-- will be forced to stop broadcasting from April 1.
All attempts by the channel to re-register were unsuccessful, as Russia's mass media and telecom watchdog Roskomnadzor has returned documents submitted by ATR four times, refusing to consider the channel’s application, amid the deadline for registrations is April 1.
Children’s Crimean Tatar TV channel Lale and the only Crimean Tatar radio station Meydan-- are also at risk of closure, as they had also been denied the registration by Roskomnadzor.
It should be noted that Crimean News Agency has also been denied the registration.
That rejection came shortly after Crimean head Sergey Aksyonov stated that ‘hostile’ media have no place in Crimea.
“We want all Crimean radio stations and Crimean TV channels to work systematically, normally, but we’re against the way that some TV channels cover events inaccurately, distort objective information, and sometimes openly lie on some points”- Aksyonov said.
“And of course, media that stir up hysteria and give some citizens hope that Crimea will return to Ukraine, thus carrying out destructive activities – the actions of such channels and their work will definitely not be welcome on the territory of the republic”- he stressed.
