Western News Outlets Curb Reporting in Russia

From a Washington Post story by Sarah Ellison headlined “Western news outlets curb reporting, broadcasts in Russia as Putin signs law cracking down on Ukraine coverage”:

Several major media organizations said Friday that they would limit activity in Russia, hours after President Vladimir Putin signed a measure into law criminalizing news coverage that accurately portrays the country’s bloody incursion into Ukraine as an “invasion.”

Bloomberg said it will “temporarily suspend our news gathering inside Russia,” according to Editor in Chief John Micklethwait. “The change to the criminal code, which seems designed to turn any independent reporter into a criminal purely by association, makes it impossible to continue any semblance of normal journalism inside the country.”
