The Press Gazette reviews:
“The Russian overseas ministry mentioned it was responding to ‘the aggressive anti-Russia coverage pursued by London’ and that ‘work on increasing Russia’s blacklist in response to Britain’s actions is ongoing.’ The overseas ministry referred to the newly-banned group of journalists as ‘Russophobia-charged officers and correspondents’ publishing ‘propaganda assist for the Zelensky regime.’ The Russian government said the journalists added have been ‘implicated in fabricating fraudulent anti-Russia tales to be promoted within the media and in spreading false details about our nation as they’re attempting to forestall and minimize brief makes an attempt at neutral protection of the developments in Ukraine and to exclude indicators of dissent by utilizing strategies described by George Orwell in his novels 1984 and Animal Farm.’”
Editor’s be aware: Joseph Stalin and Nikita Khrushchev couldn’t be reached for remark, and Animal Farm is a beast fable about Soviet totalitarianism.
