The French branch of the Russian TV channel RT France announces the closure.

The RT France channel has just announced its closure this Saturday, January 21st. This was due to the sanctions, which were resolved quickly after the start of the war. A new step was taken on Friday at the initiative of the European Union, when it was decided to freeze the group’s assets. The services of the Ministry of Economy promptly implemented this decision by freezing the bank accounts of the French branch. RT France immediately condemned the blocking of these accounts, saying it would “probably” put more than a hundred people out of work.

“After 5 years of ruthlessness, the authorities have thus achieved their goal: the closure of RT France (…) The General Directorate of the Treasury decided to freeze the bank accounts of RT France, which made it impossible to continue our activity,” confirmed on Twitter Ksenia Fedorova, President and network director.
