2:20 am
a severe government censorship. and in its final seconds on air. it showed this with a nod to russian history. this one like ballet performance was broadcast on state t v in the soviet era, either at times of political crises or after the death of a leader. it was famously shown in 1991 during the attempted coup that contributed to the end of the soviet union. for many here it's now become a symbol of broken dreams and political instability. tv rain was founded in 2010, with the motto, talk about important things with those who are important to us. now, after the start of russia, so called special military operation in ukraine, this channel is no longer able to continue because of government interference. on
2:21 am
friday, both houses of parliament passed the new law aimed a targeting media outlets that are accused of spreading fake information. it is now a criminal offense to spread what the government considers misinformation about its military, a crime which could land a journalist in prison for up to 15 years. members of the russian government believe this is crucial in protecting the armed forces mission, which you should thoughts are taking into account the situation that is happening in the media space. all those id company is starting for instruct them to say, and others are located in the united states of america. it is understandable that they use as weapons. they're bringing he trade and lice, must counter it, and protect our armed forces. the hammer of state censors have also targeted one of the most well known radio stations in the country echo of moscow took to the airwaves in august of 1990. shortly before the fall of the soviet union, the following year, its motto,
2:22 am
all significant points of view about events should be presented no longer appears supply to journalists in russia. tatiana fell gower was a journalist working at both tv, rain and echo of moscow. ethel, jasmine, it pulled off my at the, at the, it's terrible, it's a catastrophe, a true catastrophe. an absolutely terrific mistake by vladimir putin who decided to plunge russia into this. i will say it again. catastrophe. and i'm terribly scared both for my country and for ukraine. i'm terribly ashamed in front of ukrainians. it's incredible for me to realize that the president of my country started this and i'm afraid that there's nothing go ahead for my country. and for me, as a citizen, russia's independent media are slowly disappearing, accused of falsely depicting the war in ukraine. no, why? yeah, because that is one of the last independent newspapers here, and it's editor, me to morris hop who share the nobel peace prize last year. says his paper could be
2:23 am
on the verge of shutting down. that's because according to him, anything that's not propaganda is being eliminated. door safari algebra 0. moscow. let's get moon. this were joined by kathy kelly. she's the li hills chair and free press studies at the university of missouri, school of journalism. thank you for your time today. how would you describe the situation for independent media outlets in russia today? well it's, it's over for the short run, and i, 1st of all, i want to say i salute your journalists for the work they're doing in a both russia and ukraine because it is dangerous. and we're seeing that it is now dangerous, not just on the front lines in ukraine, but in russia as well, because of the threats that have been issued by the russian leaders. and i think what you're seeing is that this is kind of the end of the great era of freedom that, that was spawn by the fall of the berlin wall. and then as you are correspondent,
2:24 am
i talked about at the end of the soviet union. and i think that's why you see you here. so much disappointment in the this was a generation of journalist that grew up knowing how knowing how to do it right. and they see it crumbling before their eyes. i just thought just russian, janice, it's foreign media clearly also very concerned about the crack down for their own. we've heard in the last few hours, bloom bag, cnn bbc, cnbc, they have all announced a temporary suspension of reporting from the grounds and russia. how significant is that? well, it's very significant, but i also think it's strategic. i think this is a really smart move by both the russian media and the western media, the outsiders to really underscore a point that, that russia is now the iron curtain of censorship has fallen again across this country. and they are not going to even play ball,
2:25 am
and i think that's probably the better the better solution here, rather than try to pretend that to try to weave between the lines of censorship to just say we can't do our jobs here. the good news, i think, cuz it sends a very clear message about what putin is doing. but the good news is, i think there's a lot of great journalism that can be done across borders. and what i hope is that some of these journalists will de camp move to a place where they can continue to do their work, and through the internet and through social media. and through those sources, they have on the ground of be able to, to keep telling the truth. what is interesting to me is that people in russia, ah, trying to find out what is going on, that it's looking at some figures released by the baby. see saying that weekly visits to it's russian language websites triple to 10700000 at the bbc english language sites are also saw a 252 percent uptake. i mean,
2:26 am
people in russia do seem to want to know what is going on. i it's, it's a real shame, isn't it? well it's, it's a shame, but it's also that's a great sign of hope because people are finding ways around that iron curtain. they're, it's a lot more porous than it used to be in the days before the internet. and so i think ultimately, you know, i think short term hootin is winning long term. he loses because history tells us that when you stifle dissent, you get a revolution and the, the more you, you cut down the ability of the public to express itself through the free press. the more you bottle up that descent and build up a pressure of that, that ultimately will explode. how pervasive is the influence of russian state media and the narrative. they're currently propagating about the wool?
2:27 am
well, you know, i, i think that's the thing. i think that's why putin is so frustrated because nobody believes is propaganda. and um, and so it's, it's very difficult for him to get his message across them. he thinks that by stifling other voices, somehow he'll be able to dominate the conversation. but instead, you know, it really shows him the gas lights are off. now. this is a guy who's been gas lighting world through social media through spreading lies on social media. that's why i find that the shut down of facebook. so ironic. i'm and now he's turned up the lights and exposed himself for exactly what he is, which is i'm a strong man, a dictator. somebody who will brook no descent and doesn't want a free press and, and really isn't interested in the truth. but i think in the end it's a very sad day right now for journalism, particularly, and not part of the world, but in the end. truth is mightier than tanks. lusty put,
2:28 am
thank you for that. kathy kailey, speaking to that from columbia, missouri. she is from the lee hales a she is the lead hills chair in free press studies at the university, missouri school of journalism. thank you. let's get some of the nice know a suicide bombers killed, at least 56 people and injured 200 others in a sheer mosque in pakistan, funerals happened held for some of those killed in the north western city shower police, say the suicide bomber 1st opened fire on offices before forcing his way inside and then detonated his suicide vest during friday. chris. while of crickets is in shock and warning after the sudden death of foremost railing place. shane warne 52 year old stuff at a suspect at heart attack and thailand, son hamish looks back in the career for man idolized by fans around the globe. ah. in 1993 shane warne
