From Terry O’Reilly, NATAS Chairman:
“Like countless individuals and organizations worldwide, NATAS has been appalled by Russia’s unprecedented and unprovoked attack on the sovereign territory of Ukraine. As creators who depend on robust freedoms to shed light on stories which elucidate and impact the world around us, our members feel a deep kinship with and concern for the Ukrainian people whose liberties are at risk of being overtaken by these hostile actions.
“In light of this globally-condemned military campaign and the appropriate economic sanctions subsequently enacted in response, NATAS has determined that we cannot in good conscience do business with any entity associated with or funded by the government of Russia, including RT and RT America. Any entries currently submitted to the 2022 Emmy® Award competitions administered by NATAS which fall under this determination have been disqualified.
“We join millions of voices around the globe in calling for a peaceful resolution to these hostile actions.”
