VILNIUS, July 4 (Itar-Tass) - Lithuania's state-run television
LTV<http://www.ltv.lv/lat/>will close the Russian-language news
program in September. On Tuesday, the
LTV authorities voted unanimously for this decision.
LTV Director-General Kestutis Petrauskis said the rating of the
Russian-language daily news makes up only one percent. "Lithuania that
repeatedly blames some foreign mass media for misinterpretation of its
policy rejects one more opportunity – it sounds paradoxically – to deliver
first-hand information to people," Tatyana Yasinskaya, who chairs the
Russian culture centre in Lithuania, said in her comments. "Whether a
program can have any other rating, if it is shifted to off-peak hours in the
broadcast calendar - 17:20 pm, when people are returning home from work,"
she said.
