Russia to respond to US law banning Russian content
Russia will introduce response measures if the US Senate adopts a bill against Russian state content in US TV networks,the head of the Mass Communication Control and Supervision Department at Russian communications watchdog Roskomnadzor, Tatiana Deniskina, said.
"If there is a decision there will be measures," Sputnik cited her as saying.
The adopted draft of the US National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2018 stipulates that any video content from television stations to the extent that such content is owned, controlled, or financed by the Russian government is not allowed for broadcasting in the US.
Most recently, the US Department of Justice asked a contractor of RT in the United States to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act.
