The three-month-long restrictions ended at midnight on July 8. They were imposed on April 8 for the incitement of hatred and banned the broadcasting of any RTR Planeta programs produced outside the European Union.

LRTC adviser on legal issues Viktoras Popandopula told BNS on Tuesday this and other TV channels may face even longer bans or such channels may be banned altogether, if they continue breaching Lithuanian laws.

Besides NTV Mir Lithuania and RTR Planeta, last November a Vilnius court sanctioned restrictions on broadcasting of another Russian TV channel, PBK Lithuania (First Baltic Channel). The three channels broadcast false information, distorted facts about the January 13 events in Lithuania and incited ethnic hatred in Ukraine.
