This is reported by NTV itself.

“Google Play has removed the NTV, Segodnya and 25 Years of NTV mobile apps.

In addition, Google has blocked the account of the NTV developer.

Applications previously installed on user devices will continue to work,” the statement said.

In early May, similar steps were taken with respect to NTV in the App Store.

Earlier, the American company Google blocked the download and update of paid applications for Russian users in its Google Play marketplace.
