Pompeo urges Russia to lift restrictions on US media

United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo urged the Russian government on Monday to reconsider its restrictions on US-funded Voice of America and Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty.

"Russian authorities continue to stifle independent information and free speech. Voice of America and Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty are a vital source of information for Russians. We urge the Russian government to reconsider these new restrictions on free media," Pompeo tweeted.

Back in 2017, Russia designated Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty and Voice of America as "foreign agents."
