Journalists Put on Leave After “Russian Propaganda” Accusations

From a Washington Post story by Paul Farhi headlined “Voice of America journalists put on leave after ‘Russian propaganda’ accusations”:

Voice of America placed two journalists in its Russian-language service on leave Friday after colleagues accused them of producing “propaganda” benefiting Russian president Vladimir Putin before they joined the U.S. government-funded broadcaster.

The journalists, Garri “Harry” Knyagnitskiy and Daria Davydova, were hired by VOA in November after working for several years at media outlets controlled by the Russian government or closely allied with it.
