    WASHINGTON, January 26 (Sputnik) — American TV channel CNN hopes to resume its broadcasting in Russia as soon as possible, a representative from Turner International company, a division of Time Warner Company, which owns CNN, told Sputnik News on Monday.

    “We look forward to finding a way forward to resume distribution as soon as possible,” the representative said.

    CNN stopped cable broadcasting in Russian market on January 1, 2015 due to the recent changes in Russian media legislation. The Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. which owns CNN then stated that they hoped to return to the Russian market as soon as the distribution options are assessed.

    “Dates can fluctuate of course, but that’s our intention,” the representative concluded.

    Founded in 1980, CNN opened its Russian division in 1983 and was the first to broadcast news on a 24-hour basis.
