Russia Today’s UK bank accounts closed down, says editor

The UK bank accounts of Russian TV broadcaster Russia Today have been shut down, its editor-in-chief has said, in a move that the UK government appears to have been aware of.

In a tweet in Russian Margarita Simonyan said that “all the accounts” had been frozen in the UK. She said the decision was final, adding sarcastically: “Long live freedom of speech!”

    “The BBC is the flagship British broadcaster. It’s a public body but in the Russian mind it’s an arm of the state and they will see it as a proxy. They will look at kicking British journalists out of Russia, I guess.”

    Clark said the Kremlin used RT not for straight propaganda purposes but “information warfare”.

    “The clue is in the strapline: ‘Question more’. They are trying to sow confusion and to create a climate of intellectual pessimism and nihilism by mixing the genre of news and outright fabrication.”

    He added: “The channel is designed to undermine rational debate. It’s a multi-layered thing and just one instrument they use.””

    Projection at its most hypocritical.
