Russia’s communications regulator says it has submitted documents to the courts that accuse the BBC World News channel of violating broadcasting requirements in Russia.

Roskomnadzor detected violations of an order relating to “the protection of children from information that is harmful to their health and development,” the agency said on March 3.

It was not immediately clear what the alleged violations were or when the content in question was broadcast.

Roskomnadzor also accused the BBC of violations related to the timely filing of required documents.

The BBC did not immediately comment.

Roskomnadzor said a court date of March 12 has been set on the matter.

Russia has passed laws that critics say are aimed at muzzling foreign press operations in the country.
