Russia threatens to expel all foreign journalists if YouTube blocks content from Moscow

The spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zajárova, reported this Thursday that all foreign journalists currently in the country will be expelled if the YouTube video platform blocks foreign press conferences.

Zajárova has thus stated that "in case of blocking a single press conference, American journalists or media will be sent home." "It will suffice to name a journalist or a specific media outlet and it will leave," she added.

In this sense, he has specified that Moscow is working on a series of measures to impose in response to what it considers "unfriendly actions" by foreign governments towards the Russian media, according to information from the TASS news agency.

Zakharova's comments came after the Russian Parliament passed legislation to make it easier for prosecutors to shut down foreign media outlets in the event of "unfriendly" actions towards Russian media.
