OREANDA-NEWS. Alexander Malkevich, head of the RF OP working group on countering the dissemination of inaccurate information, public control and network security, suggested taking symmetrical measures against Deutsche Welle, by analogy with the ban on RT DE in Germany.

“We see that the OSCE representative on media issues is silent, no NGOs specializing in defending the rights of journalists speak out. Since this is precisely the power, there is no point in blaming Google. We see that this position of the new German authorities, groundlessly, the new media is to be thrown out of the market, "Malkevich told RIA Novosti.

Malkevich stressed that then civil society asks: "What is Deutsche Welle doing in Russia?" We had questions to her last year during the campaign on amendments to the constitution, when they aired the so-called“ cartoons ”in a completely ugly and boorish way, in which they mocked the chairman of the CEC. ", - completed Malkevich.

Earlier, the TV channel announced that it was launching a news channel in German - RT DE. The head of the German media regulator, Eva Flecken, said that the channel allegedly did not have a license to broadcast in Germany and announced the start of an investigation. Tobias Schmid, head of the European media oversight body, admitted that the new RT channel is irritating and that "it will be taken care of."

The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, said earlier that the Federal Republic of Germany, having no legal grounds, is doing everything to make the broadcast of the TV channel in German RT DE from the satellite impossible, this is a direct obstruction of the work of journalists.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov did not rule out earlier that Russia would be forced to respond to the refusal to broadcast RT DE in Germany.
