Latvia tells UK that Russia is broadcasting anti-UK propaganda... using UK license

A report from the UK's Sky News outlet says Latvia has raised concerns with the UK about allegedly propagandistic television programs being broadcast by a company holding a UK broadcast license.

The report is based upon a letter from the Latvian Foreign Ministry to the British Foreign Office regulator to which Sky News was granted access.

The company responsible for the broadcasts, Baltic Media Alliance, can broadcast its portfolio of channels throughout the European Union as it holds a British broadcast license.

However, that situation is likely to change when the UK exits the European Union in 101 days' time as UK broadcast licenses will no longer be valid across the EU.

The British broadcast regulator, Ofcom, said it is investigating the claims.  

The story is available via the link below.

Back in 2012 the investigative journalism outfit Re:Baltica drew an outline of some of Baltic Media Alliance's holdings.
