MOSCOW - British Broadcasting Corp. said Friday that its Russian-language FM broadcasts have been taken off the air by its Moscow distributor, which called the programs "foreign propaganda."
The decision by Bolshoye Radio — and similar moves by two other radio stations in the past year — leaves the BBC's Russian-language services available only on medium- and short-wave broadcasts, the BBC said.
Bolshoye Radio's parent company, financial group Finam, said that its license did not allow it to retransmit BBC's programs and that the station will instead focus on originally produced material.
