Russia notifies Radio Free Europe & Voice of America about possible foreign agent recognition
According to Secretary of State Pompeo, the decree will further restrict their activities
The United States is deeply concerned about the recently drafted decree by the Russian authorities regarding organizations receiving funding from the United States Agency for Global Media (USAGM). As noted in a statement by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Voice of America and Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty have served as vital sources of independent news and information for Russians for over 70 years..
According to Pompeo, the decree includes onerous new requirements that will further restrict the activities of Voice of America and Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty in Russia, exacerbating the significant and unreasonable restrictions that these organizations already face..
“We remain concerned about the ongoing harassment of the independent press in Russia and call on it to comply with its international and OSCE commitments regarding freedom of expression,” Pompeo said. “We urge the Russian government to reconsider these actions, which will cause additional damage to bilateral relations.”.
