Royal bank of Scotland refuses to close Russia Today’s accounts
The decision was made after Moscow threatened to freeze BBC’s financial assets in Russia, - The Times
The Royal Bank of Scotland refused to support the UK government’s decision to freeze the accounts of Russia Today. The biased Russian TV channel broadcasts in English far beyond the country and is well known for its pro-Kremlin position. The Times reported that on Tuesday, October 18.
The British bank decided to keep the Russian medium’s accounts alive after the Kremlin threatened to freeze the assets of BBC in Russia. The Russian government also promised to file an appeal to international rights watchers, complaining about the UK violating the rights of their reporters.
Previously, the UK blocked all accounts of Russia Today across the country. The Russian side called this a violation of media freedom.
