russia might make outside media register as ‘foreign agents’

Russia’s Parliament has passed legislation that could require foreign news outlets to submit to financial scrutiny and refer to their news products as the work offoreign agents,” the Moscow Timesreports, in apparent retaliation for U.S. censure of the Kremlin’s state-controlled broadcaster RT.The Justice Department last week ordered RT to comply with the Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938, a law originally meant to target Nazi propaganda. The move requires RT to disclose sources of funding and attempts to lobby politicians. The American arm of the Russian channel is viewed by U.S. intelligence authorities as the Kremlin’s propaganda machine.Moscow’s proposed amendments, unanimously approved Wednesday, are not quite tit-for-tat. Because they would likely apply to all foreign media ac

presstv-russia lists 2 us media outlets as ‘foreign agents’

Russia has formally designated US government-sponsored Voice of America (VOA) and Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) as “foreign agents” in response to a similar move by Washington to restrict the work of Russian media.The Russian Justice Ministry formally listed the VOA and RFE/RL as well as seven separate Russian- or local-language news outlets run by RFE/RL as “fulfilling the role of foreign agents” on Tuesday.The designation makes the news outlets subject to the same rules that are applied to foreign-funded non-governmental organizations under a 2012 law.According to the law, they can be subject to spot checks by the authorities to make certain they comply with the rules. Any information published or broadcast by these media outlets to Russian audiences also must include a mentio

Russia's Justice Ministry will reportedly begin listing international media outlets as "foreign agents" this week.Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law last months that allows the government to designate news outlets receiving funding from abroad as “foreign agents” and to block the websites of so-called “undesirable organizations.” The law was seen as retaliation against a U.S. move to label the American branch of the Kremlin-funded RT channel as a “foreign agent” last month.A presidential decree published Monday states that the Justice Ministry will "create a registry of foreign media organizations that perform the functions of foreign agents.”According to the decree, the Justice Ministry will be responsible for deciding which media outlets would be included in the registry.A sou

presstv-‘us trying to recruit russian journalists’

Russia has accused US intelligence of trying to recruit Russian journalists working in the country, after Washington and Moscow, in retaliation, designated each other's media outlets as "foreign agents" and condemned the move as “aggression.”"Recently Russian journalists, including those in the United States, have come under great pressure from the special services, notably through attempts at recruitment," Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Wednesday."This is an aggression. An aggression in terms of intelligence not only towards Russia, but also an encroachment on freedom of expression throughout the world," Zakharova added.This came the same day Russian lawmakers voted to ban the US media designated as "foreign agents" from accessing the lower house of parliament,

vladimir putin signs bills targeting foreign media outlets

(MOSCOW) — Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a bill allowing Russia to register international media outlets as foreign agents in a quid pro quo to the U.S. demand made to a Kremlin-funded TV channel.Putin signed the bill into law Saturday after the upper chamber of the Russian parliament adopted it Wednesday. The move is Russia’s retaliation after state-funded RT television was registered with the U.S. Justice Department as a foreign agent following pressure from Washington.Without even waiting for the law to come into effect, Russia’s Justice Ministry last week warned U.S. government-funded Voice of America and Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, along with its regional outlets, that they could be designated as foreign agents under the new law.

The Russian parliament is considering new legislation which could see tens of foreign Russian-language media outlets banned from operating within the country. Russia's Federation Council, the upper chamber of the country's parliament, is debating new laws which would force Russian-language outlets to disclose how they are funded.

kremlin tv network rt registers as ‘foreign agent’ in u.s.

The editor-in-chief of the Kremlin-run RT news network, Margarita Simonyan, said its U.S. branch has registered under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).The 1938 law, designed to target Nazi propaganda, has been the driving force behind escalating U.S.-Russia tensions in recent weeks. Washington DC gave RT a Monday deadline to register as a “foreign agent” following allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election."Between a criminal case and registration, we chose the latter," Simonyan wrote today in a tweet.

‘foreign agent’ ngos are turning down foreign funding, says putin

NGOs blacklisted under the foreign agent law are turning down foreign funding, leading to a sharp drop in their numbers this year, President Vladimir Putinsaid Monday.The 2012 foreign agent law requires non-governmental organizations that receive foreign funding to register as “foreign agents.” Critics say the law is a part of a broader effort to silence groups critical of the Kremlin's human rights record. “Their number has declined from 165 to 89. That’s just 0.39 percent of all NGOs registered in Russia,” Putin was cited by the state-run RIA Novosti news agency as saying at the Presidential Council for Civil Society and Human Rights.Four times fewer non-profits were blacklisted in 2017 than the previous year, either because the “foreign agent” NGOs declined to engage in political activi

manafort indictment and the foreign agents registration act

When the U.S. Department of Justice on Monday released a federal grand jury's indictment of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, as part of Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller's probe into suspected Russian attempts to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, the charges spoke to a long-running worry among U.S. lawmakers.Among the 12 charges, Manafort is accused of acting as a "unregistered agent of a foreign principal" and issuing "false and misleading FARA statements," by not properly disclosing the nature of the consulting he did for a Kremlin-linked Ukrainian political party. Failure to do so would be a violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), a registration requirement that makes foreign agents tell the DOJ whom they're working for, what they're doing, a
