​​The UK welcomes the dropping of charges against Russian investigative journalist Ivan Golunov. The Foreign Secretary and the Minister of State for Europe and the Americas publicly voiced thier deep concern following Mr Golunov's arrest. We hope his release is indicative of a movement towards greater press freedom in Russia. We will continue to call on Russia to respect freedom of speech and expression, and will continue to defend media freedom.
