    Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan said that Latvian authorities still have phobias in relation to Russia.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) Latvian authorities still have phobias in relation to Russia, editor-in-chief of Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency Margarita Simonyan said Friday following Latvia’s refusal to register the agency’s office in the country.

    Chief Notary of Latvia’s Register of Enterprises Guna Paidere decided not to cancel decision adopted in August to refuse the registration of a representative of Rossiya Segodnya in Latvia. She said the decision was motivated by the fact that the content of the media does not comply with the Constitution of Latvia and the official position of the government.

    “The country needs working places, but they are successfully replaced by phobias,” Simonyan said.

    On August 27, Latvia turned down the application to register the representative office of Rossiya Segodnya in the country.
