Russia: Calls to close RT France «gross interference» of state in media — Zakharova

Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova commented on the call to revoke RT France’s license from French public figures, during her weekly briefing in Moscow on Thursday. «This was preceded by the demarche of the presidential party in August, calling on French media to stop systematically disseminating information provided by Russia Today and Sputnik,» she said, adding «the signal... Еще comes directly from the state in the form of the president of France.» Zakharova also pointed out that «this is an example of the gross interference of the state in the work of the mass media.» Earlier, a group of French public figures appealed to the head of the Superior Council of the Audiovisual Media Olivier Schramek with a request to revoke the license from RT France. In May, Macron said that the RT and Sputnik news agencies had no right to be in his campaign headquarters. In August, Macron’s En Marche! party called on French and foreign media to stop distributing information supplied by RT and Sputnik. RT France was launched in France on Monday.
