“Moscow strongly condemns unilateral restrictive measures that contradict the norms of international law and European conventions in the field of human rights and fundamental freedoms, primarily freedom of the media,” the source said.

Kiev’s sanctions against Russian media are in clear dissonance with Zelenskyy’s declared intentions to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin to discuss problems in bilateral relations, the source also said.

“This [Kiev’s sanctions] is in clear dissonance with Zelensky’s declared appeals to convene a summit to discuss problems in bilateral relations,” he said.
