Russia – France expresses its solidarity with Novaya Gazeta and applauds the bravery of its journalists, who have been forced to suspend their activities in Russia (29 Mar. 2022)


We offer our full support and full solidarity to the editorial board of Novaya Gazeta, which decided to temporarily suspend publication after being threatened for the second time with court action for violating the Russian law on “foreign agents.”

We hail the bravery and great professionalism of its journalists and particularly its editor-in-chief, Nobel Peace Prize laureate Dmitri A. Muratov. We deeply respect their steadfast commitment to the freedom of expression and freedom of the press.
