Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty’s President Kevin Klose says the Russian government has denied a visa request to David Satter — a distinguished U.S. journalist and adviser to RFE/RL

Klose said in a statement on January 13 that the U.S. Embassy in Moscow has been informed of the action against Satter and has lodged a formal diplomatic protest with the Russian Foreign Ministry.
