It could be paradise: No repetitive jingles singing the praises of the latest cereal, no interruptions to that cliff-hanger season finale.
To the delight of millions of television viewers - and the dismay of already cash-strapped TV companies Russian state television has announced a temporary ban on all commercials on its stations.
Russia’s mammoth state television network, Ostankino, issued a statement Monday night saying ads were “the source of great irritation and disappointment” and banning them “until strict rules are set up to regulate advertisements in the interests of … ethical standards.”
An Ostankino spokeswoman wouldn’t give the reason for the ban, or say when it will take effect.
