How many media outlets will be on the Russian Ministry of Justice's list of media designated as foreign agents on 1 June 2019?

The list of media outlets designated as foreign agents can be found here. In November 2017, Russia passed a law which allows the government to designate media outlets receiving funding from abroad as "foreign agents" and subject designated entities to additional requirements or sanctions (Reuters). The following month, nine entities were designated as foreign agents, including Voice of America and Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (Reuters). The designation of individual journalists as foreign agents will not count (e.g., Radio Free Europe).
