York, March 12, 2014--The Committee to Protect Journalists condemns a decree by
Ukraine's National Council on Television and Radio Broadcasting to cable and
satellite providers on Tuesday to cut off the transmission
of Russian state-controlled TV stations in the country. The order, which was
immediately enforced, appears to be a response to Crimean authorities replacing the
of Ukrainian and independent local TV stations last week with broadcasts from
state-controlled Russian TV channels.
