Three more projects of Radio Liberty – Factograf, Sibir.Realii and Marsho Radio in the Chechen language, as well as CNN, can be recognized as foreign agents in Russia, a member of the Federation Council Commission for State Sovereignty Protection Oleg Morozov told RIA Novosti.

Earlier, a source in the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation informed that notices on the possibility of registration by the foreign agent were sent to the Voice of America, Radio Liberty projects – Idel.realia, Kavkaz.Realii, Krym.Realii and the Tatar-Bashkir service Radio Freedom, a joint project of Radio Liberty and Voices of America-Present, as well as Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty.

“Response to the registration of RT in the US as a ‘foreign agent’ may affect CNN and other projects of Radio Liberty – Factograf, Sibir.Realii and Marsho radio,” Morozov said.
