Russia Says U.S. Mistreats Its Journalists—Threatens Retaliation

From a Wall Street Journal story by Ann M. Simmons headlined “Russia Says U.S. Mistreats Its Journalists, Threatens Retaliation”:

MOSCOW—Russia complained that the U.S. was mistreating its journalists and warned that it would retaliate against American media organizations if what it described as hostile behavior didn’t stop.

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told representatives of U.S. publications at a meeting in Moscow that Russian journalists working in the U.S. were under sharp restrictions, with some reporters refused visas and Russian broadcasters banned from operating in the U.S. altogether, including online.
