A radio station that had been broadcasting news and commentaries critical of President Mikhail Gorbachev has been forced off the country's main airwaves, staff members said Sunday.

The move against Radio Rossiya, which had been on the air for just six weeks, was the latest attempt to halt media criticism of Gorbachev and the Soviet government.Two popular television programs - ``Author's Television' and ``Viewpoint' - were canceled last month in what editors and producers called a revival of censorship.

Interfax, an independent news service, was forced out of its offices in the central television center, ostensibly for failure to pay its bills.
