RT could be banned from broadcasting in UK for breaching impartiality rules






'Ofcom may impose a “statutory sanction” on the Russian government-owned broadcaster RT for breaking impartiality rules, while covering the Salisbury attack and wars in Syria and Ukraine.

The regulator can force corrections, impose fines and ultimately revoke a broadcast licence, although the move would be a last resort.

It found the RT news channel broke broadcasting rules by failing to preserve due impartiality in seven news and current affairs programmes over a six-week period.

Ofcom noted that all the programmes were broadcast in the aftermath of the poisoning of Sergei Skripal in Salisbury and said it marked a “significant increase” in potential breaches during the period.

The programmes, aired between 17 March and 26 April, included two hosted by former Respect MP George Galloway, three current affairs shows and two news bulletins.

An Ofcom spokesperson said: “Our investigations found that RT failed to maintain due impartiality in seven news and current affairs programmes over a six-week period.

“Taken together, these breaches represent a serious failure to comply with our broadcasting rules.

“We have told RT that we are minded to consider imposing a statutory sanction for these breaches. The broadcaster now has the opportunity to make representations to us, which we will consider before proceeding further.”'
