Russia: Several US media outlets to be banned from State Duma events — Zakharova

Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova stated that up to ten US media outlets will be banned from visiting the lower house of Russian parliament, speaking in a meeting of the State Duma's Standing Committee on Rules in Moscow on Monday. «I would like to emphasise we in no case deprive those US media representatives of the accreditation to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. They are... Еще able to freely continue working as journalists in the Russian Federation,» Zakharova noted. Zakharova's statement comes shortly after the US Congress withdrew RT America's accreditation on Capitol Hill. The spokesperson confirmed that Moscow's retaliatory measure would only apply to «those media which are funded by US Department of State and BBG.» However, she refrained from naming the media organisations, saying instead, ''Let it be a surprise.»
