Russia tells its space reporters to stop reporting on the space program, Ars Technica

"The country already prohibits reporting on space activities containing classified information, but a new law extends to coverage of a variety of other space news. Essentially, any person in Russia who now reports on anything that might be even tangentially related to Russia's military activities or space activities will be labeled as a foreign agent. News organizations and individuals will be required to put a disclaimer on every single article, social media post, or tweet, reading, "This Report (Material) has been created or distributed by Foreign Mass Media Channels executing the functions of a Foreign Agent, and/or a Russian legal entity executing the functions of a Foreign Agent."

Keith's note: Oh well, so much for encouraging foreign agent media coverage of new space moviefilm being photographed on orbital space station.
