Washington is closely following the fate of the Russian bill on foreign agents and how it will be implemented, reports RIA News statement by the representative of the State Department.


The State Department is closely monitoring the process of adoption of the law on foreign agents in the Russian Federation


According to the official, the State Department informed the partners in the Russian Federation that the American “FARA (the law on foreign agents, which was applied to the Russian RT channel) promotes transparency without restricting freedom of speech.”

He explained that registration as a foreign agent in the United States "requires the public disclosure of certain types of activities and relationships."

The law does not target foreign agents from a particular country. FARA does not restrict the publication of materials, but requires only the registration, marking and preservation of records,
added on.

The representative of the State Department also noted that FARA "is not used as a means of restricting political freedom."

In addition, “FARA does not interfere with freedom of expression, does not regulate the content of information disseminated, does not put any restrictions on the promotion of an agent or the publication of information or outreach materials and is neutral for all countries,” the official said.

With regard to foreign funding, FARA does not impose any restrictions on the receipt of foreign funding by non-governmental organizations operating in the United States, and does not impose any (additional) taxes. Registration requirements under FARA are not initiated solely by financing from abroad; rather, registration is required for those who carry out certain activities at the request or under the direction or control of a foreign party,
he concluded.

Yesterday, the State Duma adopted in the third and final reading a law according to which the media, receiving foreign funding, can be recognized in Russia by foreign agents. According to parliamentarians, “the amendments on the status of foreign media agents have become a forced response to the oppression of the Russian media in the United States and, in particular, the recognition of RT America as a foreign agent.”

    “After the US decision on RT and Sputnik, liberals' tales of“ Western democracy ”and“ freedom of speech ”may finally subside. Tales of supposedly“ free west ”have finally shifted into the realm of mythology. Given what has been created in recent decades, it’s hard to name NATO countries civilized. " - I agree with this .... and URGENTLY close the Yeltsin Center adder!

      Yes, never! Yabloko and some members of the liberal press have already condemned the law. The truth is not clear, they read it or not, because it has not yet been signed, but their conclusion is clear- The law is bad.

      This law alone is clearly not enough, history does not know examples of such unprecedented pressure from Western countries on our country, even fascist Germany, on the eve of the attack on the USSR, did not allow such a thing in 1941.

        Yes, he (the law), as it were, is not alone. They are the law of Magnitsky for us, we are the law of Dima Yakovlev and the law on foreign agents. They give us minus 35 diplomats, we give them minus 750 diplomats. They pressed our media, we will also strangle them. I see that the Americans themselves are doing the work that our "geniuses" in the government and the State Duma should have done for a long time and on an initiative basis in order to reduce the influence of Western countries on the Russian electorate. However, ours will not scratch without a kick from the outside. So what can you say? The mattresses themselves, with their own little hands, are clearing their information field and the possibilities of influence on the eve of the 2018 election. If the Russian Federation were the first to initiate the topic of registering the media as foreign agents with the sources and objectives of financing, then the howl would stand all over the district, and only retaliatory measure))) Our only have time to wonder and make out "gifts".yes

        And here I would suggest re-profiling the object. In Yekaterinburg there are many children, for their development to give, only with a normal bias.

          Hi Sergey, for the object \ structure to be leveled and sprinkled with salt, I put it in "hearts" figuratively .... of course the structure must be used, and of course for CHILDREN !!!
          I myself am engaged in technical creativity with the children in the evenings. I learn to work with my hands and head ... we collect models of various equipment and teach electronics / telemechanics.
          In short, I continue the work of the Father, he taught me a lot, and now I pass on my experience to the younger generation ... not having them run around the gates and sit on the internet.
          The room is certainly not ah ... but I'm glad of that, and where in the village, will you find something more suitable? The club room was allocated and thanks for that.
          And by the way, in my youth and the house of pioneers there was also a station for young technicians !!! in short, what was in the garrison, and went there, besides what parents could teach.
          The Union really had a system, training the younger generation, count. in all areas of creativity.
          That's me to that. why do people have nostalgia for the USSR. however, so far, and if the current rulers do not move their brains, the USE sect will achieve all the best that is in our children !!!

              Hi, Max! With the rise! In the 90s, under the leadership of a drunken president, everything that was possible was ruined, plundered, sold for a cordon, and also what was not

    But to use their "cyber-military" to achieve a profitable US result (in response to Russian hackers) the State Department is weak, just have to watch or what?

    It’s interesting, but the State Department will take care, all of a sudden, for infringement of rights, restriction of liberty, and finally for checking the mental health of such a prominent fighter against GDP and totalitarianism — a free artist ... at the same time setting fire to the red Faberge and setting fire to it !!!
    Squat sitting in a French jail and the little ones writes to their homeland !!! so soulful, compassionate ....

    The State Department made a hypocritical statement, but the actor from the State Department is useless. Why an actor, because in English hypocritical translates as hypocritical (i.e. acting), which reflects the essence of hypocrisy. I want to say what Stanislavsky said - I do not believe it. No need to go into details. It is enough that WHO is now in the United States, even if he has a sympathy for the Russian Federation and respects Putin, who dares to give an interview to RT, working for RT in the United States becomes unsafe because there are many parish locals who want to destroy these people. At the same time, these organisms (the State Department) are insolent to follow the procedure for adopting our law. It’s interesting how they will do it, climb onto the roof with a telescope, or watch our TV24 for days on end. They will hear a lot of different things about themselves. So what? Our guarantor seemed to have lost patience, as, among other things, he PERSONALLY called Zakharchenko, although for Poroshenko he was "not at home", he even complained to his curators.

      Have you heard anything about this from our liberals? After all, they are for democracy and freedom of speech? Quiet in bewilderment, but soon they will receive instructions and you will hear the same version of the State Department in their execution: "US law does not violate anything, but the law adopted in the Russian Federation is an action against freedom of speech"

          Here's a confirmation from the Americans: "The State Department spokesman commented that Russia misinterprets the American law on registration of foreign agents (FARA). This act, according to the Americans, does not prevent the dissemination of information and is not used as a means of restricting political freedom, but it works solely to increase transparency, that is transparency.
          According to the official, “FARA does not impede the exercise of the right to freedom of speech, does not regulate the content of the disseminated information, and does not restrict the agent from lobbying or publishing information.”

          It’s just that the American partners decided to slightly change the rules, and now the increasingly annoying American establishment - and openly perceived by them as a threat (which, of course, flatters) - fell under the law of the Russian media.

          This is normal: the gentleman stopped winning according to the old rules, which means that the time has come to adjust them - in his favor, of course.
