LONDON — Russia’s communications watchdog told Russian media on Sunday (March 27) to refrain from reporting an interview done with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy and said it had started a probe into the outlets which had interviewed the Ukrainian leader.
In a short statement distributed by the watchdog on social media and posted on its website, it said a host of Russian outlets had done an interview with Zelenskiy.
“Roskomnadzor warns the Russian media about the necessity of refraining from publishing this interview,” it said. It did not give a reason for its warning.
Russian prosecutors said a legal opinion would be made on the statements made in the interview and on the legality of publishing the interview.
Zelenskiy spoke to several Russian publications.
