If the United States toughens measures against Russian media outlets operating abroad, Russia needs to prepare a second wave of retaliation, said the head of the Committee on civil society development issues, public and religious organisations Sergey Gavrilov.

«We believe that the Ministry of justice must prepare a more thorough and decisive action to prevent hostile activities of organizations acting as foreign agents… Our actions to disseminate legislation on NGOs in the foreign media, I feel inadequate compared to the cruelty of the law that was passed in the United States, including against the Russian TV channels», — said Gavrilov journalists.

«We believe that in the event of tougher U.S. action is necessary to prepare a second wave of measures that dramatically increase the responsibility of foreign media and organizations that receive funding from abroad, performing functions of foreign agents», — said Gavrilov.
