The BBC has formally complained to Russia’s ministry of foreign affairs, after a list of BBC staff working in Russia, including their personal data, was leaked online.


The 44 journalists’ full names and photographs were published on social media by the For Mother Russia group on 25 December.


The list also appeared on Russian sites pikabu.ru and segodnya.ru.
Many of the 44 are Russian citizens working for the BBC World Service.
