Russian parliament orders probe of US media in Moscow

Washington : Russia’s parliament has called for an investigation into American media operating in its country in response to what it says are attacks on Russian media in the US, particularly state funded broadcaster RT News.

The state Duma, or lower house of parliament, called on its committee on information policy, information technology and communications to conduct an “audit” of Radio Liberty, the Voice of America, CNN and other US media “for compliance of their activities with Russian legislation,” according to the legislative body’s website.

VOA is a federal entity, while Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty is a private, non-profit organisation funded by a grant from the US Congress. Konstantin Zatulin, a member of parliament from the pro-Kremlin United Russia party, requested the probe on Friday to combat what he called a “repressive” move by the US against RT.
