Zakharova called on US authorities to stop intimidating Russian journalists

Journalists must have the opportunity to work under normal conditions and not be intimidated. This was stated by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, commenting on attempts by FBI agents to involve a representative of the Russian media in Washington in order to compromise cooperation.

As Zakharova drew attention, the US authorities do not stop trying to make the professional activities of Russian journalists officially accredited in the country as difficult as possible, in order to put pressure on them. Thus, the bureau chief of one of the Russian media in Washington became the object of attention of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

“The objective is obvious: to unbalance the journalist and try to involve him in compromising” cooperation “, the diplomat pointed out, adding that it did not work.

According to a representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, “the situation in which ‘undesirable’ correspondents are being pressured by special services, covering events in a way that Washington’s agitational propaganda would not like, is typical of the Russophobic campaign launched in the United States in the spirit of the ‘witch hunt’.

“We demand an immediate end to the treatment of Russian journalists, providing them with normal working conditions in accordance with the standards of freedom of expression, which Washington likes to talk about so much and in such a hypocritical way,” Zakharova said.
