Facts and stats

RT is a Russian state-funded cable and satellite television channel directed to audiences outside of the Russian Federation.

Due to European Union sanctions of Russian interests during the Ukraine Invasion of 2022, RT UK ceased broadcasting on linear tv platforms on 2nd March 2022 and had their UK licence revoked by Ofcom on 18th March 2022 with immediate effect after watchdog Ofcom said it did not consider the channel "fit and proper" or a "responsible broadcaster".
