‘Tajikistan Mulls Prosecuting Rude Russian Reporter’

How rude.

“Tajikistan’s General Prosecutor is considering prosecution for a Russian journalist for ‘inciting ethnic hatred’ over an article that mocked the country and its president.

“Sergei Ponomaryov’s piece in Russian tabloid Komsomolskaya Pravda about a visit to Tajikistan was published last month and featured numerous crude stereotypes. The article has already led to the shuttering of the local edition of the newspaper, which had a circulation of 5,000 in Tajikistan.”
