Russia Today may close in the United States due to pressure of the authorities, the general producer of the TV channel Margarita Simonyan announced. However, even in this case Russia Today will try to reach American viewers, Simonyan announced. “In case of the pessimistic scenario we will leave the United States, we will not broadcast there. In case of bad developments Russia will answer the American media similarly,” Simonyan said. It is not ruled out that the Western countries will also follow the U.S. example as part of the fight on the Russian propaganda.
