Today is a British newspaper The Times publishes material stating that the RBS will not freeze the accounts of the Russian television company. One might think that the banking group suddenly remembered the freedom of speech, on guard of which, as London claims, is Britain. However, everything turned out to be more prosaic. It turned out that Russia was ready to carry out a retaliatory measure - to close all accounts of the “Russian Service Bi-Bi-C” and sue.
From the material (translation TASS):
RBS canceled its punitive measure after Moscow announced that it would freeze the BBC accounts and file a complaint against the UK with international supervisory authorities for violating freedom of speech obligations.
In the British media, it was called the victory of Russia and the defeat of the Foreign Ministry of the United Kingdom. Confirmation of information published in the Times, from the editor-in-chief RT has not yet been published.
