In view of the on-going situation in Ukraine, RT (formerly known as Russia Today) has been suspended with immediate effect by the UK-based global streaming news platform NewsPlayer+. A NewsPlayer+ spokesperson said: "NewsPlayer+ is committed to bringing global perspectives and diverse views to our audience. But with a growing footprint around the world, in particular in Europe, NewsPlayer+ has taken note of the concerns of the EU and the UK Government that RT is demonstrably part of Russia’s global disinformation campaign. It appears clear that RT would seek to continue to broadcast inaccurate propaganda amid events in Ukraine and so, as a responsible UK-based broadcast operator, we have therefore made the decision to suspend the channel from our line-up with immediate effect.” NewsPlayer+, operated by PlayerPlus Limited, streams a world of news and information from 28 of the world’s leading news channels, all live in one official industry app, including Al Jazeera, Bloomberg, CNBC Europe, CNA, Euronews, NBC News Now, Sky News, Times NOW and WION. -ENDS- For more information on NewsPlayer+, please contact jenny.vanderwerf@jvpublicity.com, or call on 07721015182
