US correspondent barred from entering Russia
Russia has denied a visa to a journalist for the US-funded Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, saying he is "undesirable."


RFE/RL President Kevin Klose said in a statement Monday that barring David Satter from entering Russia represented a "fundamental violation of the right of free speech." Klose said the US Embassy in Moscow has lodged a diplomatic protest with the Russian Foreign Ministry. (AP)
