“Earlier, we qualified such actions as manifestations of liberal dictatorship.

But in Borrell’s statements, they sparkled with new colors with shades of inadequacy,” she said.

Earlier, the chief of European diplomacy said that the European authorities, by banning the work of the Russian media, do not attack freedom of speech, but "protect it." 

He also announced the creation of an information threat analysis center in the EU.

The Council of the EU has previously initiated the process of suspending the broadcasting licenses of the Russian TV channels NTV, REN TV, Rossiya 1 and Channel One.

In addition, the EU, as part of the ninth package of restrictions, imposed sanctions on the autonomous non-profit organization TV-Novosti.

According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, the hunt for Russian media in the European Union is a gross violation of the principles of freedom of speech and is clearly discriminatory.
