MOSCOW (Sputnik) Following Simonyan's statement on Twitter earlier in the day, RT UK said it had been informed by the National Westminster Bank that it "will no longer provide" banking arrangements with the broadcaster.

"Our lawyers are doing it right now. We intend to find other ways to continue our work in the United Kingdom and we shall not give up, we shall do everything to preserve out broadcasting and so that our audience continues to receive information, some kind of alternative information on what is going on in the world," Simonyan told reporters.

RT operates a number of cable and satellite television channels in a number of languages and is directed at a foreign audience. The channels provide 24-hour news coverage, as well as airing documentaries, talk shows and debates.
