Russia threatens U.S. media with legal crackdown


(AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE) — MOSCOW — Russia on Monday threatened US media operating in the country with new legal restrictions after Kremlin-controlled broadcaster RT complained of persecution by Washington.

The Russian justice ministry sent letters to “a number of US media operating in Russia” warning them of the “unacceptability of breaching Russian law,” its press service said in a statement quoted by Interfax news agency.

It said the letter was “a tit-for-tat measure in response to the persecution of Russian media in the United States.”
