Independent television Dozhd has been granted permission to broadcast in the Netherlands, Russian media reported, citing the decision of the Dutch media regulator. In December last year, the station lost its license to broadcast in Latvia after a high-profile dispute over one of the programs, where words were spoken about “improving the living conditions” of Russian soldiers fighting in Ukraine.

The decision of the Dutch regulator was issued at the end of December. The regulator announced that it had granted permission to TVR Studios for commercial broadcasting in the form of the Dozhd TV channel. Obtaining the license will allow the independent Russian station to resume broadcasting on cable television in the European Union countries.


Calls for soldiers

Dozhd was decided by the Latvian authorities stripped of its license after a high-profile dispute over one of the programs. The National Council of Electronic Media has invoked, among others, on the statement of the station’s journalist Alexei Korostelov about “improving the conditions” of Russian soldiers fighting against Ukraine.

Independent Russian media recalled that Korostelov appealed to viewers to send messages to the station’s special e-mail address dedicated to topics related to the Russian army. – We answer almost everything. Many of the stories sent to our mail and Telegram are published. We hope that we have been able to help many military men, for example, with equipment or simply with basic needs at the front, he said on the air.

Korostelov was released. The editor-in-chief of TV Tikhon Dziadko admitted that his statements “give the viewer the impression that the Dozhd channel helps the army Russia“, however – as he assured – the station does not do this in any way.

Plans to launch a studio in Georgia, France and the Netherlands

After losing his license, Dożd announced that he intended to continue working and that he would receive a license in another country. Before broadcasting on Latvia the station planned to launch studios in as well GeorgiaFrance and the Netherlands.

Dozhd TV (TV Rain) started operating in Latvia in July – after being forced to stop broadcasting in Russia due to its coverage of war in Ukraine. In Russia, the station has been operating since 2010.
