Russian DTH operators FSUE Kosmicheskaya Svyaz, NTV Plus and Tricolor TV use the Eutelsat 36B satellite. The company gets 6% of revenue from Russia. Eutelsat said in a statement it had now ended all involvement in the broadcast of three Russian channels, Rossiya One, Pervyi Kanal and NTV, after France's Arcom television regulator urged the company to do so.

The French regulator has said Eutelsat must cut ties with NTV Mir. It is claimed Russia was Eutelsat's second biggest client last year. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) has asked France’s broadcasting regulator, ARCOM, to order French TV satellite operator Eutelsat to stop carrying three Russian TV channels that are spearheads of the Kremlin’s war propaganda.
