MOSCOW, March 17. /TASS/. Moscow is alarmed at the large number cases where Russian reporters are being restricted from fulfilling their professional duties in Western countries, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at a meeting with representatives of Russian non-governmental organizations on Friday.
The chief diplomat pointed out that given the rapid development of IT and communication technology, support for global stability depends a great deal on the media’s objective efforts.
"This won’t help the West’s orchestrated campaign to discredit Russia," the minister warned. "We are worried about the countless cases of our reporters’ professional activities being obstructed," he said. "We hope, professional associations will continue promoting high standards of reporters activities."
