Amid continued controversy about Russia's role in trying to influence last year's US presidential election, Twitter last month banned advertising by RT and by the state-funded Sputnik news agency. "They are planning to apply a United States law to Russia Today and Sputnik news agency", Volodin said.
Zakharova did not specify which outlets would be targeted or what the actions would be. The restrictions were criticized by the USA and the European Union.
FARA requires registration "if an agent disseminates informational materials, by mail or by any means or instrumentality of interstate or foreign commerce, and intends the materials to be disseminated among two or more persons".
It was not clear how this label would apply to US media and how it would potentially affect their work, or how many media outlets would be affected.
"Every media now has its own pages in social networks, which also publish their news, articles and videos".

Russian news media reported in October that the upper house of the Russian parliament had drawn up a blacklist of at least five US media outlets whose activities in Russia could be restricted in response.
Vyacheslav Volodin, the speaker of the State Duma, said parliament could back legislation as early as next week in response to what lawmakers view as US pressure on Russian media.
"It will very much complicate the possibility of interviewing people because we will have to report this too", she said. "We consider its demand as a wish to eliminate an alternative source of information, which is an unacceptable violation of the global norms of free press".
An intelligence report in January alleged the outlet spearheaded "strategic messaging for [the] Russian government", fueling political conflicts in the US during the 2016 campaign.
RT has become a focus of the USA investigations into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
The 2012 Russian law now applies only to non-governmental organizations that receive foreign funding and are considered to engage in political activity.
