Russian media outlets that print swear words face heavy fines under rules signed into law on Monday by the president.

The new law stipulates fines for “the use of foul language” but does not give a list of banned words, leaving journalists confused over exactly what has been prohibited.

Journalists could face up to 3,000 rouble (£62) fines, while media outlets could be made to pay up to 200,000 roubles (£4,150), if they fall foul of the regulations.
