Russia has taken over broadcasting the Islamic Republic's satellite programs after the European company Eutelset stopped dealing with the Iranian government due to the EU sanctions against Iran.

The Asre Emrooz website reported on Sunday that 19 Iranian satellite channels will be broadcast globally by Russian satellites. The report adds that 11 Iranian state radio channels will also be broadcast in 30 different languages.

Eutelset stopped broadcasting 19 Islamic Republic networks from its Hotbird satellite starting October 15.

Iran challenged the move, calling it the "illegal, immoral and unprofessional" result of "pressure from the U.S. Zionist lobby."

The Iranian government has blocked many Persian-language programs broadcast from outside Iran, and the government forbids households from using satellite dishes to receive satellite programs.
