Amendments to Law on Mass Media

July 1, 2021

Federal Law On Amendments to Article 191 of the Russian Federation Law of the Russian Federation On Mass Media.

The Federal Law has been drafted to implement the resolution of the Russian Constitutional Court dated January 17, 2019, which recognised certain provisions of Article 191 of the Russian Federation Law On Mass Media regarding restrictions related to the establishment of a mass media outlet or a broadcasting organisation (legal entity) inconsistent with the Constitution of the Russian Federation.

The provisions of the Federal Law specify the restrictions associated with foreign participation regarding the founders of a Russian media outlet, which makes it possible to minimise foreign influence on the activities of the domestic media.
