Russia Accepts Violations Reported by Armenian Television and Radio Commission


Russia Accepts Violations Reported by Armenian Television and Radio Commission

An important meeting between Armenia's Ministry of High-Tech Industry and Russia's Ministry of Digital Development, Communications, and Mass Media was held to discuss their agreement on working together in media and telecommunications.


After this meeting, both sides agreed that Russia acknowledged there were violations in how some TV and radio programs were broadcasted in Armenia, according to the Commission on Television and Radio of Armenia.


They decided to work together to make sure they follow all the rules in the agreement they signed back in December 2020 for the next seven years.


The problem began when a Russian TV show made fun of the Armenian Prime Minister and the Armenian people, causing upset among Armenians. This led to demands to stop Russian TV channels in Armenia. The Commission that manages TV and radio in Armenia says it can't stop these channels alone; it needs help from higher authorities.


There are four Russian TV channels in Armenia under agreements, but Armenia doesn't have any TV channels in Russia.
