Asked if he supported the decision, the president limited himself to answering no.
“I follow RT on Twitter. Yesterday I called Gurméndez but I had nothing to do with the decision“, he assured in dialogue with El Espectador.
The president of Antel personally decided to remove the Russian signal RT from the Vera Tv platform because it is “at the service of propaganda” and justifies “Russia’s violent military invasion of Ukraine,” which is “condemned by our country,” he wrote on his Twitter account.
This same decision had already been made by television operators in other countries, such as the United States, Canada and Germany; in addition to massive platforms such as Meta, Google and Apple.
