The Kremlin regards the decision to strip Russia’s RT television channel of its press accreditation at the US Congress as an unfriendly step and a violation of freedom of speech and press freedom, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Thursday.
Axar.az reports citing TASS.
"I would like to say that the decision by US senators and congressmen to strip RT of its press accreditation is an extremely disappointing and wrong decision violating the principles of press freedom and freedom of speech," Peskov said.
According to the Kremlin spokesman, all that is nothing but an attempt to restrict the work of a media outlet, "this is a very unfriendly step, we are deeply disappointed." "We hope that this low point in the American history will sooner or later end with the restoration of democratic freedoms," he stressed.
