Vienna, 30 January 2002

The South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO) is worried about the developments connected to the critical TV channel TV6 (ТВ-6) in Russia. TV6 was one of Russia’s first commercial television stations and it began broadcasting on 1 January 1993. The station was closed on 22 January 2002. The electricity was shut off in the middle of the “Nightingale’s Night” show while a guest was singing.
