Roskomnadzor (RKN) will block the social network Twitter on the territory of Russia in a month, if the service does not delete the prohibited information.
This was announced to TASS by the deputy head of the department Vadim Subbotin.
“We took a month and watched the reaction of Twitter on the removal of prohibited information. After that, depending on the actions of the administration of the social network, appropriate decisions will be made,” said the interlocutor of TASS.
“If Twitter does not fulfill the requirements of Roskomnadzor, the requirements of Russian legislation, respectively, we will consider the issue of a complete blocking of the service in Russia,” the service added.
According to him, if the company fulfills all the requirements, the sanctions against it will be lifted.
Roskomnadzor on March 10 announced the beginning of a “primary slowdown” in the speed of Twitter in Russia due to the fact that the service does not remove content prohibited in the country. The department promised to continue measures of influence on the social network up to its blocking. At the same time, as the head of the department for control and supervision in the field of electronic communications of Roskomnadzor Yevgeny Zaitsev said last week, the department is ready to conduct a dialogue with the company, but it does not respond to inquiries and demands.
