- Moscow drafting tit-for-tat measures to place severe restrictions on US media
- US orders RT to register as ‘foreign agent’ or have its bank accounts frozen

The announcement on Friday came shortly after the Kremlin-funded international news channel RT said it had been ordered by the US Department of Justice to register as a “foreign agent” by Monday or have its bank accounts frozen.
