The media corporation Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty (RFE / RL, recognized as a foreign agent on the territory of the Russian Federation) within 60 days must pay in the amount of 5.5 million rubles in fines for the lack of marking “foreign agent” on its resources.
The Tverskoy District Court of Moscow ruled to dismiss the newspaper's complaint. The judgment of the magistrate on fines remained in force.
Roskomnadzor Telegram-channel clarifies: “According to the law“ On Mass Media ”(Art. 25.1), materials from foreign media performing the functions of a foreign agent must be distributed on the territory of Russia with the appropriate labeling. This provision is intended to inform the Russian reader that the materials distributed by these media pursue the interests of other states. "
