The Russian language N News Agency reports:
“The Russian government’s international radio broadcasting service Golos Rossii (Voice of Russia) will stop its shortwave broadcasts from January 1st next year.
The shortwave service is closing due to funding cuts. Voice of Russia is to broadcast several programs in foreign languages including Mongolian language for the last time on December 29th, 2013.[…]”
This is the second time the closure of VOR has been mentioned in the online press.
To date, I have seen no official announcement/confirmation from the Voice of Russia (though an earlier statement from VOR didn’t deny the possibility).
Many thanks to Andy Sennitt for the tip!
