BBC to resume English language reporting in Russia

The Guardian says The BBC is to resume English language reporting in Russia after it had temporarily suspended its coverage to assess the implications of the country’s new media law.

It paused the work of its news reporters and support staff in Russia on Friday after legislation was passed making it a criminal offence to spread “fake” or “false” news about the Kremlin’s war in Ukraine.

The BBC said it had “considered the implications” of the law and that after “careful deliberation” it would continue English language reporting from Tuesday evening.

In a statement, the BBC said: “We have considered the implications of the new legislation alongside the urgent need to report from inside Russia. After careful deliberation we have decided to resume English language reporting from Russia this evening, after it was temporarily suspended at the end of last week.
