Their other demand is to exclude the Belarusian TV from the European Broadcasting Union.

The head of the Swedish human rights organization Östgruppen Martin Uggla stated it during an appearance at the Swedish TV, reports the Swedish radio Ryska.


The human rights defender refers to the system of values, adopted by the European Broadcasting Union last year.
