Moldova’s Dodon signed law lifting restrictions on Russian Tv Channels Broadcasting

CHISINAU (AFP): Moldova’s outgoing President Igor Dodon announced on Friday that he had signed a law lifting restrictions on the broadcasting of Russian tv channels in his country.

On Thursday, the parliament voted to revoke all restrictions. “I have signed an important law that introduces changes and amendments to the Republic of Moldova’s audiovisual media services code. From now on, censorship on TV channels is canceled, and soon Moldovan residents will again have the possibility to see news by Russian TV channels.
and other TV channels the broadcasting of which used to be prohibited,” Dodon wrote on Facebook.
