Russia adds DW News to 'foreign agents' list | DW News

Russia’s justice ministry has added Deutsche Welle to a list of media organisations it labels as “foreign agents”. That designation means DW is required to label anything published with a disclaimer. The term carries negative Soviet-era connotations in Russia, suggestive of spying. It’s not the first action taken against DW. In early February, Russia ordered the closure of our Moscow bureau and our website was blocked by Russia’s state communications regulator earlier this month.

  1. Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Him. There is no other intermediary. May Jesus Bless you, trust Him, give your life – and He will take care of it :pray Convert yourself and believe in the Gospel – Romans 10 8-10 But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,” that is, the message concerning faith that we proclaim: 9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. : Why this division, in the evil world we are in, we will be treated as objects and put to fight against each other. This is not what human life should be about. What is the point of wars, the constant enrichment of small units that they erode on the people they use in their plan. It is clear where this is going, we are only a pawn in the game and evil wants to use us for its purposes. There isn't much time left. No matter where you come from, who you are: Christ Is Waiting for you now. Wake up while there's still a chance. May God Keep u in His care.

    An interesting thing about a disease that was created in laboratories by man. You don't remember any other flu: avian, swine, hiv virus that was also created by the human hand. The whole system of pharmacy [I recommend checking the meaning of the word pharmakeia] is not about treatment, but about stuffing the wallets of regular customers, leading them to death.

    it's all business, people do not mean night: just look at what is happening in the world. Evil has no friends, does not know what love or loyalty is – it fights against its own. How to overcome evil? A simple way: apply love to him and wait for reactions. Evil doesn't know what it is, the easiest way to deal with the problem. [MT 24] And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. 10And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. […]

    Christ is more powerful than the evil that now rules in this world. "

    Remember that I have won the world <3" Jesus Is Coming – rejoice, the Lord Is near.

    Just a moment longer and the Bridegroom will come and take His Bride

  2. What does the word 'Agent' have to do with spying? The word has a definition and was used in its regular meaning?
    It just means someone is a contact of interaction between different entities.

  3. Better “foreign agent” than Soviret Troll Factory like every Russian media outlet…
    Whatever they say, they just lie as usual … if one adds together a bunch of psychopaths and gives them political powers, this what you get, no better example than the top Russian government.
    Politicians shouldn’t be allowed to candidate or ascend to any serious official position without a green light from a psychological medical examination.

  4. Can you blame them? I mean, who's telling the truth? Everybody acts it's all Putin's fault!!! I say bs!!! NATO was the initiator of the encroachment!!! The West always claims that there morality is unmatched but is it? I hearken back to the Iran-Contra fiasco. What was that about? Underhanded behaviour which is the norm for the way of things today. Stay strong and don't believe all you read or see on the various "boob-tubes".

  5. "It's not true of it's not in Pravda." The Russian citizenry are not taught many critical thinking skills (neither are American children) and thus single-source information from nowhere is fact.
    There is nothing new in any of this. The Soviet Union was closed to outside information as well (although bits and pieces of it made it through the curtain) for a half century

  6. I have always liked Deutsche Welle for your reporting. And I want to congratulate you for making the honor roll. It's a great sign that you are doing a great job on reporting on this terrible war.
