A Moscow court has ordered the independent newspaper Novaya gazeta to pay a 500,000-ruble ($7,300) fine for publishing a December interview with an Orthodox cleric who condemned Russia's ongoing invasion of Ukraine. The court said on January 18 the paper was guilty of discrediting Russia's armed forces. In September, the newspaper was fined 400,000 rubles over materials published in its new project, Novaya rasskaz-gazeta. In November, Russian authorities blocked access to Novaya gazeta's website. In March, the newspaper suspended publication online and in print following Russia's strict new censorship laws. To read the original story by RFE/RL's Russian Service, click here .
