Kremlin-backed broadcaster Russia Today has its bank accounts frozen by Natwest
Natwest has frozen the accounts of the Kremlin-backed broadcaster Russia Today, according to its editor-in-chief.
Margarita Simonyan Tweeted, ‘They’ve closed our accounts in Britain. All our accounts. The decision is not subject to review.
Staff at the Kremlin-backed channel said that the Royal Bank of Scotland group, which includes Natwest, was refusing to service RT.
Russia Today claims that the bank said in a letter to their offices, ‘We have recently undertaken a review of your banking arrangements with us and reached the conclusion that we will no longer provide these facilities.’
