According to a statement on the regulator’s website, the Dutch Media Authority issued a five-year broadcasting permit for the Russian independent television station TV Rain after its license had been canceled in Latvia.

The permit, dated Dec. 22, will “provide a commercial television broadcasting service as a retail media association,” the regulator said. It needed to be made clear when the report was published.

Latvia revoked the license of TV Rain in early December after the company was branded a risk to national security. The liberal-leaning TV Rain, or Dozhd, shifted to broadcasting from Latvia and other nations in July after being moved to shut its Moscow studio following Russia’s attack on Ukraine.
