Moscow, October 9: Another setback struck US-Russia relation as Russia keeps warning it may impose restrictions on American media. This warning may be viewed as a counter step to U.S. scrutiny over Russian state-funded outlet RT. RT is accused of meddling in internal politics of US by some of Washington.
As per Russian law if a foreign country targets a Russian media outlet then Russia can impose proportionate restrictions on media outlets from that country operating inside Russia. Hence now Russia is taking help of this law.
“Correspondingly, everything that Russian journalists and the RT station are subject to on U.S. soil after we qualified it as restriction of their activities, we can apply similar measures to American journalists, American media here, on Russian territory,” Zakharova said.
