Ukraine cable channels ax Russian content

Removal ordered by broadcast authority

MOSCOW -- Ukraine's highest broadcasting authority, the National Council for Broadcasting Issues, has demanded that Ukrainian cable operators take Russian-language channels, including Channel One, Ren-TV, TV Center and RTR Planeta, off their packages.

Earlier this year, Ukrainian authorities accused Russian channels broadcasting in the country of "blatant propaganda" and suggested that Ukrainian-language broadcasting should be stepped up.
