New law allows Russia to register journalists as foreign agents

Russian President Putin signed a bill into law that gives the government the right to register bloggers, journalists and social media users as foreign agents. The bill extends an existing law involving foreign-funded media outlets. The new law has been criticized by many for restricting freedom of expression in the country even further and allowing the authorities to crack down on dissent.
