Chisinau, Dec. 17 /MOLDPRES/- President of the Republic of Moldova Maia Sandu came with a reaction to the decision of the Commission for Emergency Situations to suspend during the state of emergency the broadcast license of six TV channels. It is about Accent TV, NTV Moldova, Orhei TV, Primul in Moldova, RTR Moldova and TV6, the presidential press service has reported.
"The decision is based on the findings of the Audiovisual Council on these channels which show the lack of correct information in the coverage of the events in the country and the war started by Russia against Ukraine, and comes to protect the national information space and prevent disinformation", the head of state said.
Maia Sandu also said that in the uncertain situation we are in, it is very important to prevent any attempt to destabilize the country.
"Preserving peace and stability in Moldova is our priority, in the difficult context we are in, with war on the border. And protecting the national informational space is an important step for preventing destabilization attempts, set up by people subject to international sanctions. We cannot admit that in this period full of challenges, the security of the state and the peaceful life of the citizens are endangered by fugitives who want only one thing - to escape justice", concluded the head of state.
