Following the passage of the new Russian media law, public broadcasters have temporarily halted reporting from their Moscow studios – according to a statement from WDR, which is in charge of the Moscow studio on behalf of ARD.

background: Against the backdrop of the Ukrainian invasion, the Russian parliament on Friday passed a law providing harsh prison sentences for unfavorable reporting on the Russian military.

Thus, imprisonment for up to 15 years threatens to spread “false news” about the military. Foreigners are also affected by the law, which Kremlin tyrant Vladimir Putin (69) signed into law on Friday.
