BBC and Litvinienko’s case

July 17, 2007 at 10:53 pm Leave a comment

BBC NewsAfter explosion of four Russian diplomats from the UK the commentators were guessing extent of the retaliatory measures of the Kremlin.  Some suggested that the Kremlin will retaliate at the British interests in Russia such us the British Council or even the BBC.  BBC has a license to broadcast its services in some Russian cities on FM frequencies.Eventually the response from the Kremlin came and it seems that Russians are still keeping their ‘powder dry’.  This is rather more confusing and somehow annoying because Kremlin is leaving place for its maneuvering for the future.

I wonder what is the mood in the Bush House in London?  I would not be surprised if the heads of the BBC are in the process of thinking to scale down criticism of the Kremlin’s position and not only on Litvinienko case.  I don’t think BBC would be happy to be excelled from Russia. Hence, Moscow in theory holding the BBC on the dog lead, meanwhile Kremlin is keeping its powder dry. I would not doubt objectivity of the BBC, but I will keep this in mind when getting info on Russia from the BBC, at least until the Kremlin will fire its shots.
