MOSCOW. Nov 1 (Interfax) – The Russian telecommunications watchdog Roskomnadzor is currently not preparing any coercive measures against the U.S. media, including CNN and social networks, Roskomnadzor head Alexander Zharov said.

“Speaking about now, we are working within the legal framework and we are not preparing any specific actions on the U.S. media and U.S. social networks,” he told reporters on Wednesday.

Roskomnadzor earlier had a certain legal dialogue with CNN television, but “the problems stated by us have now been resolved,” Zharov said.
