Boris Johnson: The free media will not be intimidated by violence

The British Prime Minister Boris Johnson stressed that the free media will not be intimidated by violence, as he himself commented positively to the correspondents of the British television network Sky News about the coverage of an ambush in Ukraine, earlier this week.

"The free press will not be intimidated by barbaric and indiscriminate acts of violence," Johnson said on Twitter.

On Friday, the Russian parliament passed a law that provides for the imposition of a prison sentence of more than 15 years on anyone found to be spreading "fabricated" news, intentionally.
