The arrests of journalists in Russia, reminiscent of the campaign against freedom of the press, wrote on 7 July, in Twitter a press-the Secretary of the U.S. Embassy in Moscow Rebecca Ross.
July 7 in the Russian Federation was held an online conference on the theme “the world through the eyes of the media in 2020” with participation of the representative of the Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova.
“Russia through the eyes of the media in 2020″ – a more relevant topic. We are seeing the arrest of the arrest of Russian journalists – it begins to resemble a coordinated campaign against the freedom of the press”, – said Ross.
In response, the Russian foreign Ministry wrote: “Mind your own business”.
Mind your own business.
