fapmc.ruAmerican authorities continue exerting pressure on Russian media, TASS reports. RIA Global producing media content for IA Sputnik is pressed to register as a foreign agent.

As per the Russian Embassy in US, this is an obligatory condition for allowing further functioning of RIA Global on the territory of the country.

According to Russian diplomats, these measures of Washington restrict actions of journalists and lead to limitations for mass media. Case with RT channel, when it was banned from working in US Congress was given as an example.

Embassy comments that such actions are unacceptable. Russia has never suppressed mass media including foreign journalists, whereas US and some of the allies keep on pressing Russian mass media. Besides, intelligence services are constantly trying to recruit Russian journalists.

Diplomats have mentioned that OSCE has not reacted yet and conceals information that the extremist website Mirotvorets (The Peacemaker) with personal data of thousands of reporters who used to work in Donbass moved to US. Evidently, similar mass media sources feel safe and sound in US, the Embassy explained. Diplomats have also supposed that countermeasures from Russian side would be strongly disapproved by international organizations.
