Roskomnadzor intends to propose amendments to the law on foreign media which will provide million-dollar fines. According to the Head of the establishment Oleksandr Zharov, this is a response to pressure put on Russian media abroad, as Interfax reported.
“The proposed fines will comply with those imposed on Russian media abroad. Roskomnadzor will be guided by the practice of the British media regulator Ofcom,” Zharov noted.
According to him, amendments will be prepared and presented to State Duma within next ten days.
