Russia declares nine US media outlets ‘foreign agents’

Russia has declared nine US media outlets, including Voice of America and Radio Liberty, to be foreign agents, the BBC reports.

The new law that makes it possible for foreign media to be declared foreign agents was rushed through the Russian parliament last month.

It means the media outlets have to declare their source of funding.

The move is in retaliation for the US justice department ordering the Russian channels RT and Sputnik to register as foreign agents there.
