The media watchdog plans to decide if to take further steps to restrict the broadcasting of RTR Planeta and TVCI in Lithuania.

The LRTK says that a Vladimir Solovyov show broadcast on RTR Planeta on May 31 and The Right to Know show broadcast on TVCI on June 10 contained incitement to war and hatred.

Russian lawmaker Vladimir Zhirinovsky said, among other things, on the RTR Planeta show that "We need to give an ultimatum to the Baltic states to withdraw all NATO forces 300 kilometers from Russia's borders and if you don't, we'll take certain measures".

When asked by the host what measures would be taken, Zhirinovsky said, "They'll see. Some planes will fly in in the morning, at night".

On the TVCI show, the Russian politician spoke about an occupation of Ukraine and Transnistria, the breakaway region of Moldova.
