Ukraine Invasion: RT Removed From DSTV As Russia Sanctions Tighten


DSTV has joined other international media outlets that have removed Russia Today (RT) from their platforms as sanctions tighten against Russia for invading Ukraine.

“MultiChoice confirms that as of today, 2 March 2022, Russia Today (Channel 407) shall not be carried on the DStv platform until further notice,” said a MultiChoice spokesperson late on Wednesday.

“Sanctions imposed on Russia by the European Union has led to the global distributor of the channel ceasing to provide the broadcast feed to all suppliers, including MultiChoice”.

Microsoft Corp said Monday it was removing Russian state-owned media outlet RT’s mobile apps from the Windows App store.

It has also stopped adverts on Russian state-sponsored media.

Earlier on Wednesday Google followed Apple’s lead and removed the apps of RT and Sputnik from its mobile app store.
