The head of NEPLP noted that the decision was made in connection with the ownership of the platforms by entrepreneur Yuri Kovalchuk, as well as VK CEO Vladimir Kiriyenko. Both are included in the EU sanctions list.

Recall that earlier, on April 29, the Riga court lifted the ban on five Russian entertainment TV channels: TNT-Comedy, FRIDAY International, etc. . At the same time, Abolins then announced his disagreement with the decision and his intention to appeal against it.
