Moldova on Tuesday blocked access to more than 20 Russian media websites, saying they had been used as part of an information war against the country.
The Russian Foreign Ministry branded the move a "hostile step" aimed at denying Moldovans access to alternative news sources.
A decree published online by Moldova's Intelligence and Security Service listed 22 Russian news resources to be blocked, including prominent ones such as Russia Today, NTV, Ren TV, state media holding VGTRK and others.
