Those who incite conflict and give people hope that Crimea will back to Ukraine will not be able to work in Crimea, head of Crimea Sergey Aksyonov said in an interview with Ria Novosti .
Aksyonov specifically mentioned ATR saying that “the management of the channel has been told that (it is unacceptable) to escalate the situation and arouse a feeling of tension among the population, linked with the fact that the channel gives hope of Crimea’s return to Ukraine, inciting other people to action, and speaks of how later those who received Russian passports will be dealt with. The work of such channels at the present semi-war time is unacceptable”, Aksyonov said.
To recall, Russia's mass media and telecom watchdog Roskomnadzor refused to register ATR-- the only Crimean Tatar television channel—as Russian media. All attempts by the channel to re-register were unsuccessful, as 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.
Meanwhile, Yury Stets, Ukraine’s Minister of ‘Information Policy’ announced that ATR will be able to broadcast its content from mainland Ukraine.
