EU condemns Russian `foreign agent' media law as `threat'
The "foreign agents" law is in retaliation to conforms with the United States registering Moscow-controlled RT Television by the same term.

In a move condemned by Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International, US and other foreign media will have to present themselves as foreign agents on all paperwork and submit to intensive scrutiny of staffing and financing.

The 2012 law, which had applied only to non-governmental organisations, has now been formally extended to non-governmental organisations.
