MOSCOW – Russian television channel Dozhd (Rain) is temporarily halting its work, its general director said on Thursday, after its website was blocked earlier this week.

Natalya Sindeeva issued a statement after Ekho Moskvy radio station, one of Russia’s last remaining liberal media outlets, closed following pressure over its coverage of the war in Ukraine.

“We need strength to … understand how we can work from here. We really hope that we will return to broadcasting and continue our work,” Sindeeva said in the statement published on the channel’s website.
