Russia Expels Politico Reporter

From a story on by Claudia Chiappa headlined “Russia expels Politico reporter”:

Eva Hartog, Politico Europe’s reporter in Moscow, has been expelled from Russia after 10 years reporting in the country.

Russia’s foreign ministry told Hartog last Monday that her visa would not be extended and gave her six days to leave the country. Hartog was told the decision had been made by the “relevant authorities,” but was given no additional information about how the ruling was made.

Since Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine began last year, foreign journalists have been required to reapply for their visa and media accreditation every three months, as opposed to once a year before the war started.
