The newspaper The New York Times announced that it withdraws all its staff from Russia, in response to the new law enacted in Moscow that “criminalizes independent journalism,” according to a statement from the organization.
The New York Times is temporarily pulling its staff from Russia, the company said Tuesday, in the wake of a new law that effectively criminalizes independent reporting and puts journalists who describe the war as a war at risk of being sentenced to prison. https://t.co/tRd6tbeRLb

For its part, the British public broadcaster BBC announced today that it will return to reporting in English from Russia starting tonight (Tuesday), after having temporarily suspended the work of its journalists in that country last Friday, due to the approval of a law that provides prison sentences for disseminating “false information”.
The NYT announcement joins that of other Anglo-Saxon media, the Bloomberg economic agency, as well as Spanish media such as the EFE agency and Radiotelevisión Española, in addition to other communication services from Germany, France and Italy, which have temporarily suspended its activities in Russia.
