“We plan to stop our medium-wave broadcasts starting Nov. 10, as
this is stipulated by Russian law. There are more than 48% of foreigners
among our founders, and therefore we have no right to continue
broadcasts in this range in Russia. Our lawyers recommended such a
solution to us so as not to violate Russian law, and we always comply
with the letter of the law,” she said.
Glushkova pointed out that the termination of MW broadcasts has no
relation to the coming of new head of Radio Liberty’s Moscow office
Maria (Masha) Gessen.
“This has no relation to Maria Gessen. We simply do not want to break
the law. But we will certainly remain on the Internet and will continue
broadcasting there,” she said.
