RT responded as follows:

In response to the journalist’s on-air statement, the Russian TV channel said: “Contrary to the popular opinion, RT doesn’t beat its journalists into submission, and they are free to express their own opinions, not just in private but on the air.”

The broadcaster added that it would send Ms Martin to Crimea to “give her an opportunity to make up her own mind from the epicentre of the story”.

So far Ms. Martin has not taken up RT’s offer to provide unbiased reporting from the “epicenter” of the story.
