MOSCOW, February 21. /TASS/. Russia will not introduce any restrictions on the work of the mass media as these measures would deny people the right to get information from various media outlets, the Russian presidential press secretary, Dmitry Peskov, told TASS on Saturday.
Commenting on the Ukrainian Security Service’s recommendations to strip certain Russian media, including the TASS news agency, of accreditations at the country’s bodies of state power, Peskov said: "Russia is the country where the activity of mass media is regulated by law and so Russian and foreign reporters are equal in their rights to obtain information."
"Russia will never follow suit in restricting the people’s right to get information from various media sources," he said.
Earlier in the day, the Ukrainian Security Service’s spokesperson Yelena Gitlyanskaya said that the Service had issued recommendations to strip of accreditation at Ukraine’s bodies of state power more than 100 Russian media outlets. She confirmed to TASS that the list had been handed over to the administration of Ukrainian parliament.
On February 12, Ukrainian lawmakers voted in favour of suspending Russian journalists’ accreditation.
Russian journalists, TV producers, cameramen and support staff of a range of Russian media outlets in Ukraine’s governmental authorities will not have an accreditation until Kiev’s military operation in eastern Ukraine ends.
