Statement on RT

12 March 2018

Ofcom spokesperson: “The Russian news channel RT broadcasts in the UK under licences issued by Ofcom as the broadcasting regulator.

“Ofcom has an ongoing duty to be satisfied that all broadcast licensees are fit and proper to hold a licence.

“We have heard the Prime Minister’s statement in the House of Commons this afternoon and we await her further statement on Wednesday. We will then consider the implications for RT’s broadcast licences.”
