Kremlin Condemns U.S. Police Attack on Russian Reporters

Russia expects that the United States will take exhaustive measures to ensure personal security of Russian journalists, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday commenting on the incident with employees of Russia’s Channel One who were attacked by U.S. law enforcement officers, TASS reported.

“We view as outrageous the attack on Russian journalists by police of the United States. We expect the U.S. authorities to take exhaustive measures in order to ensure personal security of Russian journalists and to create proper conditions for unrestricted work of the media in general,” he said.

Channel One’s press office said earlier in the day that the channel’s film crew were injured in the attack by “camouflaged men” in the U.S. city of Portland, where protests have continued since the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis in late May.
