In the lower house of parliament, it is noted that now in Russia the law on “foreign agents” is ready to be distributed to the media. Representatives of the 4-s parliamentary factions agreed on the necessary amendments to the law "On Mass Media". Now, if the law is supported, the media that work in Russia using foreign capital, and also registered outside the Russian Federation, will receive the status of “foreign agents.”
The Duma noted that the media “foreign agents” will be obliged to label their products with the appropriate sign, which is spelled out in the relevant law. The status of media "foreign agents" will be registered by the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation.
Recall that, registering RT as a “foreign agent,” the United States stated that this is a normal practice and it has nothing to do with violating the principle of freedom of speech. Interestingly, what will be said in the United States to the response from Russia, when the American media will be obliged to report on what exactly they are allocated for the implementation of media activities in the Russian Federation.
