Russia 🇷🇺 neither forbade nor did it ask any Media persons to leave the country.

All that Putin did was to pass a law that if any media house publishes or circulates any baseless fake news, it will be given a period of one month to prove the veracity of the news. If unable to do so, it would have to undergo fifteen years imprisonment.

As soon as this law was passed, BBC, Deutsche Welle (DW), Al Jazeera, CNN, Washington Post, New York Times have all quickly withdrawn all their correspondents from Russia.

This proves that all of them were knowingly indulging in the business of spreading fake news.
