Russia’s foreign ministry has demanded that the United States stop persecuting Russian journalists

More limitations are continually put on Russian journalists accredited in the United States, in order to make their work more difficult or to intimidate them into leaving.

“We demand that the harassment of Russian journalists cease immediately, and that they be allowed to operate under normal conditions, in accordance with the rules of freedom of speech that Washington so proudly touts,” Zakharova said in a statement.

Zakharova said that the US continues its “Russophobic witch-hunt” of pressuring “unwanted journalists” using security services into covering events in a way that benefits Washington.

 

She noted that the Federal Bureau of Investigation recently attempted twice to involve a head of a Russian correspondent office in Washington in “compromising cooperation,” saying it was yet another example of the unprecedented pressure Russian journalists have to face. (ANI/Sputnik)
