Putin has signed amendments to the law on the status of a foreign agent for the media

59
Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law containing rules on the media that perform the functions of foreign agents. The document, adopted by the State Duma on November 15 and approved by the Federation Council on November 22, was published on official portal legal information.


Adoption of the law followed in response to the request of the US Department of Justice for RT and Sputnik to register as foreign agents.

Putin has signed amendments to the law on the status of a foreign agent for the media


The provisions of the law allow the media to be recognized as an “inoagent” if it receives funding from abroad.

After acquiring the status of an “inoagent”, the media will be subject to restrictions and obligations that are now provided for non-profit organizations - “foreign agents”; they will also face the same liability for violation of legislation for such NPOs.

The Ministry of Justice will decide whom to recognize as an inoagent. To do this, it can create a separate register of media - foreign agents, if the need arises.

Earlier, the Justice Ministry has already warned some media that they may become foreign agents - in particular, the Voice of America, Radio Liberty, Kavkaz.Realii, Crimea.Rei, Sibir.Reali, and IdeL.Realii ", the TV channel" Present ".

        Why whom to recognize as a foreign agent will be the Ministry of Justice. and send notifications?
        There is a law. Banderlogs themselves at 24 hours should crawl and register.
        And if not, then fines, the seizure of the organization’s property, a paralysis of rights, etc.

      Yes, no repression, Alexander. You just need a real spring cleaning among these media. Overgrown with dirt. And this dirt is dumped on us all the time.
      So it’s more like ordinary hygiene.

            The famous Swedish journalist Anna Lena, who lived in Moscow for several years, spoke about the peculiarities of education in Russia.

            In her article entitled “A Dirty Child - Illiterate Parents”, published in the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter, she admitted that a pure cult of purity reigns in Russian families, which is not typical for Europe.

      Echo of Moscow is funded by Gazprom and not from the United States. So it will not work to press it.

        Channel One spoke about Echo of Moscow’s cooperation with the Americans, which released a film on its broadcast about BBG financing by some Russian media. The program was based on data from the list of achievements and completed BBG financial projects for the 2015 year ("Request for funding by the US Congress in the 2017 year"). In addition to "Echo of Moscow", the list also shows the TV channels "Present", "Rain".
        Gazprom Media Holding, which has a controlling stake in Ekho Moskvy radio, has not confirmed anything. Say, all this is not true.
        So, it’s quite likely that Gazprom-Media’s verification is needed.

      The word “repression” must be quoted so that these channels will be exemplarily brought into line with the standards applied by the main spokesman for “democracy” in relation to objectionable media.

    Well, the stupidity of the US State Department gave rise to Russia to deal with all the subversive "voices" and any media hostile to us that work in and against Russia! And what’s very important, everything happened on time, because the election of the President of the Russian Federation, as they say, is "just around the corner" and a good situation has arisen "sweep the dirty linen out of the hut!" It's time to "sort out" not only the hostile media, but also to "clear the fifth column"!
