Russia will take action against British media active on Russian territory. This is a retaliation for measures taken by the British authorities against Russian journalists.
Russian press agencies TASS and RIA reported this based on sources.
British authorities decided earlier not to issue a visa to a Russian reporter. Another journalist was forced to leave London. According to Moscow, there was no explanation.
The sources labelled the action as a brutal violation of the rights of journalists. They called discrimination against reporters a “British tradition”.
The same sources previously accused Britain of working against Russian media in Estonia.
