Rainesford, a senior journalist currently based in Moscow, described the events in Havana, Istanbul and Madrid.

The BBC condemned Russia’s decision not to renew the visa of one of its journalists, describing it as a “direct violation of media freedom.”

The company has urged Russian authorities to reconsider its decision to “expel” Sarah Rainsford, who currently lives in Moscow.

Russian media reported that Rainsford had to leave the country at the end of the month of his residency.

The report said the move was in response to Britain’s refusal to issue visas to Russian journalists.
