Flickr/Iain WatsonAmerican Senate is going to prohibit its nationals to watch Russia-produced TV programmes. US Parliament discusses a draft law proposing to ban distributors to broadcast Russian state video content, RIA Novosti informs. Congress members believe that TV channels should not broadcast the content controlled and financed by the Russian government.

Besides, the distributors will be prohibited to conclude commercial contracts with parties, which include the above-mentioned content into their broadcast network.

It is worth reminding that American authorities are going to enter RT into the list of foreign agents. The channel should admit that it is a foreign agent; otherwise, US authorities might arrest its employees. In case this channel acknowledges this status, its work will become impossible.

Besides, Twitter banned advertising of RT and IA Sputnik. Twitter administration explained its decision as investigation of Russian interference into American elections of 2016.

Russian President Vladimir Putin referred to the restrictions undergone by Russian mass media abroad as very strict.
Moscow promises retaliatory measures.
