In the Baltics, you won't be able to watch RT anymore. This week, Lithuania followed Latvia's move late last month to ban the state-controlled Russian broadcaster — formerly known as Russia Today — because of its alleged ties to an EU-sanctioned Kremlin media executive, Dmitry Kiselev. Estonia's government said in a statement that it may also do the same. Host Carol Hills discusses the ban with Solvita Denisa-Liepniece, an assistant professor at Vidzeme University of Applied Sciences in Latvia.
