Waking up to a leaked photo is one thing, but, waking up to supposed reports out of Moscow indicating that the Kremlin has issued orders for the arrest of SHK is a different rodeo. We’ve become aware of apparent orders after we’ve once more rejected the notion that we are required to register as a major media outlet.
The law in Moscow states that a news media organisation must register with The Kremlin if it receives more than about 2,500 monthly visitors. We receive upwards of 650,000 on our smaller blogs, and 7m+ on our main web page.
Moscow has been trying to force The Daily News to register since 2014.
