MOSCOW - Russia's justice ministry will start registering some foreign media as "foreign agents" this week, the RIA news agency cited a source in the Russian upper house of parliament as saying on Monday.

Nine US media outlets, including the Voice of America and Radio Liberty, are likely to enter the list of "foreign agents" to be approved by Russia's parliament, the source at the legislature's Federation Council chamber told RIA.

The Kremlin has said it fully understands why Russia's parliament plans to discuss banning representatives of US media organizations in retaliation for what it calls US mistreatment of Russian media.
