Moscow says it will ban all British news media, if London shuts down ‘Russia Today’
Amid talk that London might ban the Russian state media outlet RT over the nerve-agent attack against Sergey Skripal in Salisbury, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova threatened on Tuesday that Moscow will ban all British media in Russia, if RT’s press credentials are stripped in the UK. “Not a single British mass media outlet will operate in our country, if they close Russia Today,” Zakharova told reporters.
“No one person can go to their parliament and say, ‘I'm giving Russia 24 hours.’ What are they even talking about? Whom are they giving 24 hours? Twenty-four hours for what?” asked Zakharova.
