The Washington Post suppresses the signatures of Russian journalists; BBC promotes Russian dark web site

The Washington Post says it will remove bylines and dates from articles written by the paper’s reporters in Russia to ensure their safety.

The move comes after Russia enacted a bill that criminalizes the intentional dissemination of what Moscow considers “false” reports.

Blockages have been imposed on the BBC, Voice of America and the US government-funded Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, German broadcaster Deutsche Welle and Latvian site Meduza.

In response, the BBC promoted its Ukrainian and Russian language services on the dark web.

The government’s sweeping action against foreign media that publish news in Russian aims to establish even tighter controls on the news domestic audiences see about the invasion of Ukraine.
