Reporters Without Borders has declared the situation is "very serious" in a record number of countries, according to the World Press Freedom Index. Norway took first place in the 2023 index, followed by Ireland in second and Denmark in third. Nine of the top ten countries are EU states, while the US fell from 42nd to 45th. Russia, China, and India all placed below 160th, while Ukraine was elevated from 106th to 79th. The European Union's blanket ban on Russian outlets is also omitted from the organization's report.
