Federation Council approved the law on media inoagents

23
The Federation Council approved today at the plenary meeting amendments to the law on mass media, which allows recognizing any foreign publication that receives funding from abroad as a foreign agent.


154 senator voted for the adoption of the document, no one, abstained one. Now the document will go to the signature of the president.

Federation Council approved the law on media inoagents


The development of the document was a response to the harassment of Russian media in the United States: in early November, the US Department of Justice ordered the RT television channel to register as a foreign agent

The Ministry of Justice has already warned a number of media outlets that they may become foreign agents. Notifications were received by Voice of America, Radio Liberty, Kavkaz.Realii, Krym.Realii, Sibir.Realii, IdeL.Realii, and Present Time TV channel.

Among the possible "candidates for foreign agents" were also called CNN and Deutsche Welle, but their law has not yet touched, reports RIA News

      The most important thing is ours to identify foreigners living on money. But for now, the gut of the deputy is thinly labeled.

      The level of censorship on domestic Russian media is also necessary. Too much allow themselves the same "Echo", "New ...", etc.

      Yes, again we begin to "maneuver". Don't want to look like them? But the law must be categorical - get money from another country, a foreign agent.

    But what about the media, which seem to be like Russian, but getting loot from behind a hill?
    That's who really is a foreign agent.
    The foreign media and so it is clear to everyone from where the information.
    But those media that seem to be both Russian and people trust them, but it turns out that they exist on Western money, they certainly need to be labeled. Brand !!!

      when they start sticking stickers next to the logos of the media, we will all be very surprised at the mass phenomenon. I hope that they will really stick

      and then we will laugh at those who copy authoritative opinions from "authoritative" media here.

      There are lovers of trump cards, articles about how Russia is heading into the abyss and more

        I believe that for this period of life, "authoritative" and "media" concepts are not compatible.

    "The Federation Council approved today at a plenary meeting amendments to the law on the media, which allows recognizing as a foreign agent any foreign publication receiving funding from abroad.".

    There is still not enough law on the recognition by foreign agents of the Russian media, vilifying the country of their stay and feeding ... At our expense, we are also ... laughed ... And - they live quite well at the same time ...

    "The Ministry of Justice has already warned a number of media that they can become foreign agents. Notifications were received by Voice of America, Radio Liberty, Kavkaz.Realiy, Crimea.Realiy, Sibir.Realiy, IdeL.Realities, TV channel "Present". "...

    Honestly, I did not understand this nuance, or rather - legal verbiage ...
    But what, these foreign media do not use foreign capital? ИХ - is Russia financing? Specifically - the Russian government or the Russian oligarchs?

    What, nafig warning, if everything is clear there already ??? recourse request

    Our deputy likes CNN, although even Trump called them "fake media." And how does it relate to the fact that our RT accounts for 320 ml. Americans, and at 146 ml. Russians account for 9 US media, and two of them decided not to touch (especially CNN) / Yeah, our "mirror" response is settled. tongue

    abstained alone

    He was probably afraid that they would not give their hand and would automatically become not a “handshake”. Recently, even a filmmaker repented for his film in front of the liberoid mass.
