Russia Says Nobel Prize-Winning Journalist “Foreign Agent”

From a story on by Gabriel Gavin headlined “Russia declares Nobel Prize-winning journalist ‘foreign agent'”:

Dmitry Muratov, one of Russia’s best-known journalists, has been added to the country’s list of foreign agents, less than two years after the Kremlin praised the principled reporting that saw him awarded a Nobel Peace Prize.

Muratov, the former editor of now-shuttered liberal newspaper Novaya Gazeta, was included in an update Friday evening to the Russian Ministry of Justice’s register of journalists, politicians and activists that Moscow claims are acting on behalf of hostile states.
