Apple has not removed any of the applications of Russian TV channels from the App Store in Ukraine, the company said.
Earlier, the press service of VGTRK reported that Apple has removed applications “Russia-1”, “Russia. Television and Radio”, “Vesti FM”, as well as “Vesti.ru” from the App Store catalog at the request of the Ukrainian Security Service.
“Apple only notified the Russian developers of the requirements of the Ukrainian authorities and offered to address them directly,” the company said.
NTV and MIA “Russia Today” also received notifications from Apple.
The Union of Journalists of Russia has already responded to this message. The organization will notify international human rights organizations about what is happening.
