State Duma deputies will have a meeting devoted to the observance of the legislation operating in the Russian editions of the radio “Voice of America” and Radio “Freedom”, as well as CNN. We are talking about a possible intervention in the electoral process. About this informed the head of Committee of the lower house of Parliament on information policy, information technologies and communications Leonid Levin (“Fair Russia”), reports TASS on Thursday, April 6.

The decision to hold meetings with analysts and experts decided after consultation with members of Parliament and the initiator of the Protocol Commission — the first Deputy Chairman of the Duma Committee on CIS Affairs, Eurasian integration and relations with compatriots Konstantin Zatulin (“United Russia”).

According to Zatulin, the test should be a response to the actions of American politicians, who regularly accuse the Russian media of meddling in the internal Affairs of the country. In particular, the bill U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen on the modernization of the registration of foreign agents in the United States directed against Russia Today TV channel.

In January of this year was published a declassified version of the report prepared by the CIA, FBI and national security Agency (NSA) of the USA. The paper alleged that the President of Russia Vladimir Putin ordered to organize a campaign to influence the political process in the United States. Moscow has rejected these allegations, comparing the accusations a witch hunt.
