    The Ukrainian leadership has decided to block several media outlets, including RIA Novosti Ukraine and Sputnik, in the country as part of Kiev’s anti-Russian sanctions.

    You Shall Not Pass

    As per a new set of punitive measures against Russia, Kiev blocked access to россиясегодня.рф, Sputniknews.com, Ria.ru, Rsport.ria.ru, 1prime.ru, and realty.ria.ru for Ukrainian users.

    The Russian Foreign Ministry expressed outrage over this move and described it as an “act of political censorship.”

    Earlier this month, the Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) broke into the offices of RIA Novosti Ukraine in Kiev, arresting the agency's head, Kirill Vyshinsky, on charges of treason.
