The Federation Council Committee on constitutional legislation ready carefully to consider proposals for the improvement of the law on mass media-registered as foreign agents if they will be formulated in the form of amendments, reported RIA Novosti the Chairman of the Committee Andrey Klishas.

The presidential Council on human rights under President of Russia (HRC) will prepare amendments to the law on foreign agent status to the media, reported RIA Novosti the head of the HRC Mikhail Fedotov.

«The Federation Council will continue dialogue with the HRC’s media law-registered as a foreign agent. We have a good working relationship with the Council, and all proposals of the HRC, if they are formulated in the form of amendments will be carefully considered by our Committee», — said Klishas.

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Saturday signed the law on the status of a foreign agent to the media. Earlier last week the Federation Council approved the document «for» vote of 154 people, one has refrained, «against» not voted no. According to the text of the law, registered as a foreign agent can be recognized by the media receiving financial support from foreign States or organizations. Changes to article 6 of the law of 27 December 1991 «On mass media». Amendments to the status of the media-foreign agents have become a forced response to the oppression of the Russian media in USA and, in particular, the recognition of RT America as a foreign agent.

Previously, the Council on human rights under the President urged the Federation Council to reject the law and send it back for revision to the state Duma. The HRC has stated the violation of procedure during the adoption of the document and pointed to the uncertainty of the language that supposedly will allow you to apply the law to all media. As said the head of the HRC Mikhail Fedotov, the imprisonment of human rights defenders intended to make a legally irreproachable Russian response to the American Ministry of justice in respect of RT, the necessity of the response in the HRC is beyond doubt.
