Russia accuses Deutsche Welle of urging Russians to take part in protests

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia on Thursday accused German media outlet Deutsche Welle of calling on Russians to take part in recent anti-government protests, and it said Moscow would take action against the outlet under domestic law if it made such calls again.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement that it had told a German diplomat that calls made by Deutsche Welle on social media were “unacceptable”.
