EaP CSF Steering Committee Resolution on Imposing Sanctions against Russian Media

Following Boris Nemtsov’s assassination, the Steering Committee of the EaP CSF adopted a resolution on imposing sanctions against Russian media. Nemtsov repeatedly argued that the west should sanction Russian media owners and managers who broadcast propaganda at home or abroad. This propaganda supports President Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine, seeks to destabilise other Eastern Partnership countries, and promotes fear, insecurity and aggression in the region.

Boris Nemtsov inspired the EaP CSF resolution adopted in Batumi on media war conducted by Russia and he himself listed some of the names of media owners and managers that western sanctions should target. The EaP CSF Steering Committee recalls its resolution on media war conducted by Russia, and calls on the speedy arrest of those responsible for the murder of Boris Nemtsov and on the EU to consider imposing sanctions on Russian media owners and managers.
