Lithuanian PM: Polish TV channels should be accessible.


Lithuanian PM Saulius Skvernelis thinks that more viewers in Lithuania should have access to Polish TV channels.

"I believe that if it is possible, digital terrestrial broadcasts should cover all of Lithuania, not only this region," he said reporters in Salcininkai, a town in southeastern Lithuania with a large Polish minority population.

According to Skvernelis, Polish information could counterbalance Russian propaganda.

The Lithuanian Parliament's May 3 Group, which aims to analyze and deal with problems of Poles in Lithuania and Lithuania-Poland issues, has said that up to eight Polish TV stations should be rebroadcast in the region of Vilnius.
