The Latvian operator Balticom refused to continue cooperation with the Dozhd TV channel. Viewers of the Baltic republic have not been able to watch it since August 1.

Latvia had previously decided to ban the broadcast of the RT group's TV channels. As the reason, the authorities named the sanctions imposed by the European Union against the general director of MIA Rossiya Segodnya Dmitry Kiselev. The Latvian regulator has called on other European countries to do the same. 

RT is run by Margarita Simonyan, who is not subject to any restrictions. Dmitry Kiselyov is the head of the MIA Russia Segodnya. These companies are two separate legal entities. In Russia, they believe that Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia are systematically putting pressure on the Russian media, attacking freedom of speech and limiting the access of their citizens to information.

On September 1, millions of children in Russia went to school. And millions of their peers in Ukraine also went to schools. Everything seems to be the same: flowers, bows, well-dressed children, excited parents...

However, starting with this academic year, hundreds of thousands of Russian-speaking children no longer have this opportunity in Ukraine.
