Russian Embassy in the USA: Stop restricting freedom of speech

34
The Embassy of the Russian Federation to the United States issued an official appeal to the US authorities. Employees of the Russian diplomatic mission after registration with the US Department of Justice on RT and the relay company Reston Translator (partner of the Sputnik news agency) as “foreign agents” called on Washington to stop restricting freedom of speech.


RIA News quotes a message from the Russian Embassy in Washington:
We urge the US authorities to stop the practice of restricting press freedom in relation to the Russian media. We also caution against the introduction of individual restrictions against our journalists in the United States. (...) It is obvious that now they are trying to intimidate American commercial structures that work with our media resources.


Russian Embassy in the USA: Stop restricting freedom of speech

Reston Translator has American jurisdiction. The US supervisory authorities obliged her to register as a foreign agent, as she is engaged in broadcasting the content of the Russian news agency. Apparently, in the USA the day is not far when the number of “foreign agents” will include ordinary Americans who read and watch foreign content.

Russian experts note that the United States is on the road, which at one time decided to go to the USSR, hanging an “iron curtain”.

      You're right. And the author lied, and it’s so familiar that readers missed it.
      * The Iron Curtain * at the borders with the Soviet Union it was the Western countries that lowered it. There was such a Churchill, so he tried to become the author of the very term * the Iron Curtain * and what followed.

      Well, how to say ... Our RT is very popular in the West, because we are telling the truth to people!
      I remember here on the site when they created RT, some whining like Putin has nowhere to put money, why do we need this new media, there is an ECHO hehe
      Great job guys, the West is tearing and mosquing from powerlessness .. Hold on there, Russian journalists do not give up!

      This is the only way we can respond to the boorish attitude of the States towards Russia.

    There has never been freedom of speech. All these are fairy tales. Remember the story. They always spread rot, and even killed those who spoke the truth.

      Well then, they didn’t even bother lying, but as they disliked the alternative point of view,
      there’s the dentist-homeworker Rudik, he has the Grundig receiver,
      He twists it at night, catches, counter, the FRG.

    Of the listed type of funds (such as the voice of America, etc.) I never heard, I never saw, but for weak minds I would forbid it forever. Maybe the experience of the Chinese should be taken into production? There McDonald's is purely Chinese and Facebook national ....
    Another question, what does the Echo of Moscow do for the money of the Russians? Putin, I see this whole bacchanal, he understands, but still can’t shake off liberoids (the Yeltsin debtor and the company)?

    My friends from the USA (we correspond) say so that if we want to see and hear interesting and sensible - we turn on RT!
    There is a chance that such a “run over” to our media in the USA will have the opposite effect, and RT will become even more popular wassat

      And we hear this from the country of the gulags and "I don’t know another such country where it is so quietly and quietly around"?
      Where does the joke come from?
      In the morning in the newspaper stall:
      - Is there a "truth"?
      - There is no truth. They sold Russia. Remained Labor for 3 copecks. And the Komsomol -
      hanging around the corner.

    Vasily, remind us who Churchill was during the Fulton speech, the “Iron Curtain”?
    He was an ordinary retired politician, a representative of the opposition. If someone from the opposition offers to wash boots in the Indian Ocean, this does not mean the official position of Russia!
    Our diplomats could send the same note to the Kremlin. The authorities of ALL COUNTRIES are gloomy about the media giving alternative information that is different from the official one. Everyone is engaged in propaganda. Alas, it is! And our diplomats value their places! hi

    So what, did America heed the calls of our ambassador? We keep stuffing America as friends. For some reason, we believe that without us it is impossible to solve a single problem. In Iraq and Libya they decided without us, and in Ukraine - against us. America is repeating, so return Crimea to Ukraine, then maybe we'll talk. But America is an empire of lies, it’s naive to agree on something with it.

    We have already warned why unnecessary verbiage? What needs to be done must be done. Otherwise, everything will begin to turn into another Chinese warning. And if you can’t do anything, keep quiet.

      The delirium of a madman, of course, is indecent. But here's what is strange, in relation to the USA, even the madness of a madman is decent, because the USA is an empire of lies, so it is unworthy to defend it.

    To fully express your righteous anger towards the States and their minions, use the compass to point to the West, put shit in your mouth and spit in that direction. They will be upset by this and will be very worried.

      It’s not a matter of compass and shit, but the fact that the desire of our authorities to somehow establish relations with the United States is indecently naive, because, as Monter Mechnikov said, consent is a product of non-resistance of the parties, and the opposite side is an empire of lies and negotiating with it useless. You want an example, when a high-ranking commission gathered to determine whether Clinton had sex with Monica Lewinsky, the investigation determined that at least a blowjob was taking place between them. Clinton, in defense of the accusations, replied "depending on what is called sex." The high commission thought and justified Clinton. This is what American justice is about. Our authorities need to stop trying to look acceptable to them. To tackle one’s own problems is to stop observing the rights of oligarchs in the raw material industries. To plant the oligarchs and the community that joined them and nationalize their companies, because in the extractive industries private traders are no more effective. than the state. Then there will be money for education and healthcare.

      First, then we did not go through this, because under war communism, enterprises such as trade and agriculture were stupidly nationalized, where private traders are more efficient. Oddly enough, foreign concessions dominated the extractive industries, and secondly, no one can deny the achievements of Soviet science in breakthrough nuclear research then in space. Thirdly, the Soviet education system was copied by Western countries. Now the oligarchs lack an information base for inciting a civil war. Did anyone raise a weapon when they put Khodorkovsky? In the late Soviet times, there was no hell, there were a lot of nonsense, but this is not a question of the system, but a question of the performers. By the way, in view of the emergence of information networks, computer planning of the national economy becomes real: just liberals resist it. because it robs them of speculative superprofits
