Roskomnadzor has list of media outlets in Crimea to apply sanctions against
Starting from 2015, the Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology, and Mass Media will use sanctions against Crimean media outlets, which «conduct provocative policy». This information comes from the Republic’s vice-minister for internal policy, information, and communications, Yulia Martynova.
As stated on KrymInform, the website of the self-proclaimed government of Crimea, the Service members raised the issue of «aggressive informational policy against the Russian Crimea conducted by a number of media outlets both inside and outside the Republic». In particular, the web portal «Sobytiya Kryma» was mentioned.
Deputy Oleskander Shevtsov says that the headlines at this portal are “obviously provocative”, and for this reason he would like to know who owns the portal and whether it operates on the territory of Crimea. The Service’ head, Mr.Shuvaynikov says that many journalists work for “grants, the money from Kyiv, Europe, or the US”, and waging “psychological warfare” against the “Russian Crimea.”
As to countermeasures, they can be applied only since January, as for now, until 2015, media outlets in Crimea continue to function under the Ukrainian licenses.
