The EU Ambassador to Moldova called on the Moldovan authorities to clarify the reasons for the suspension of broadcasting of opposition TV channels in the country

EU Ambassador to Moldova Janis Mazejks reacted to the decision of the Moldovan authorities to suspend the broadcasting of 6 opposition TV channels. In this regard, the head of the EU Delegation in Chisinau called on the country's leadership to explain the reasons for the incident.

The decision made and published by the Commission on Emergency Situations was in fact very brief. In this regard, the government, as well as the Coordinating Council on Television and Radio of the Republic of Moldova, must provide explanations in order to find out what it [the decision] was motivated by. For this reason, I would like to appeal to the public authorities, as all this raises a number of questions.

– said Mazejks on the radio Vocea Basarabiei.

At the same time, the diplomat admitted that the EU leadership also imposed sanctions against channels broadcasting propaganda, however, as he clarified, the position of official Brussels was always clearly conveyed to the population.



Janis Mazeiks:

As for the Republic of Moldova, of course, at this stage, I would not interfere in internal politics and discussions between the government and the opposition.

It should be reminded that on December 16 the leadership of the republic suspended the broadcasting license of the country's leading opposition Russian-language television channels. We are talking about the channels Primul în Moldova, RTR Moldova, Accent TV, NTV Moldova, TV6 and Orhei TV, which, according to the official Chisinau, allegedly incorrectly cover information about the events taking place in the country and Ukraine. The Russian Foreign Ministry regarded the decision of the Moldovan leadership as an act of political censorship and an outrage on the principles of media pluralism, which grossly violates the rights to freedom and access to information. All this, as the Russian Foreign Ministry added, is an infringement of the rights of national minorities (Russians, Bulgarians, Gagauzians, Ukrainians) living in the republic.

    It is interesting that the EU Ambassador asked such a question. The question is uncomfortable for the Moldovan authorities. It does not mean that everything will be returned immediately. Most likely nothing will change. But still, there is still hope...

      I am from Moldova.
      The authorities react only when it suits them.
      So it was with the Venice Commission.
      Well, these are just suggestions...

    Here you have freedom of speech and freedom of the media, we forbid watching and listening, but we warn about this, everything is like after Hitler came to power.
    Here it is the vaunted Western democracy - "Stay there, come here!"
    Step left, step right, step back....was human and not human.

      With Radio Rain, it turned out even funnier, they worked in a totalitarian morder for 12 years until they themselves left, and in democratic Lithuania they were covered up after 4 months for just one phrase that ran counter to the policy of the regional committee. Democracy in action. In general, our liberal Westerners have been tearing all the patterns of the world in recent months, their adored West. Here, too, Israel decided to press Pugacheva for forgery with a passe-partout.

        Yeah, as the richest man in London, he thought that he "grabbed God for the rascals", but forgot that in Britain he is nobody, only people with money. The money will be taken away and kicked in the ass. All these thieves and grabbers believed that they were accepted into Europe, but no, they don’t respect such people there, they have their own "concepts" and such people remain outcasts there. Putin, though casually speaks, but always hints.
        And as always right.

            Beautiful, muzzle and about the table. The elite is all thieving, impudent and not educated, and does not know that after the October Revolution of 1917, almost the entire elite (those who were not banged) of the Russian Empire found themselves behind the cordon, in the West. The counts worked as taxi drivers, the princesses danced in the variety show, the actresses and singers on the panels, and the artists and tenors of the panel swept, for the West they were despicable people, unlike those who lost the war and had revolutions - the Germans and Hungarians. Well, after WWII, history repeated itself, but the modern elite is degraded and thinks that they are chosen by God and will be carried in their arms and blow off dust particles (by the way, every ragula also thinks so).

    Freedom of speech! There is democracy and freedom of whatever you want. If they want, they will close the channels, if they want, they will ban the broadcast, if they want, they will not give the technical possibility of going on the air. There is an alternative, you know, there is a choice! But it's interesting - how will the leadership of Moldova react to the words of an "enlightened" European?

      You see, we are already talking not about freedom of speech, but about freedom of silence. The rationale behind the closure of some channels that did not comment on the events in Ukraine at all was this: propaganda in silence.

    Well, if they cover it incorrectly, then it’s right that they covered it. How else?

    Duc is in the same place that Evreich is in charge, the French do not get out, about any cans in Moldova is not heard. This is such an excuse that they didn’t force it? Maybe they didn’t order the opposition to be sent to prison?

    Notice he "urged" to clarify, not to resume. Will explain. Or maybe they won't explain. But they won't resume. The EU is all in white.
