Russia Outlaws Exiled Meduza Site in Latest Move Against Media

Russian prosecutors labeled the independent news site Meduza “undesirable,” effectively criminalizing the outlet in the country. 

The Prosecutor General’s Office said Thursday Meduza, which had already been named a foreign agent in 2021 and whose site was blocked in Russia, poses a threat to the constitutional order and security of the country. While dozens of journalists and media organizations have been previously labeled as foreign agents, Meduza is the fourth outlet to be outlawed with the “undesirable” label in Russia.
