Russia: Foreign Ministry threatens retaliatory restrictions on US media outlets


“Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova is warning that Russia is considering applying restrictions to certain US media outlets in retaliation for recent US measures taken against Russia’s RT news channel. Last month, the US Justice Department ordered RT to register as a ‘foreign agent,’ which requires them to make a massive number of disclosures. The Foreign Agent Registration Act was meant to target foreign lobbyists and politicians, and had virtually never been used against journalists before.” (10/09/17)
