Twitter to be blocked in Russia soon, Khodorkovsky’s Open Russia movement reports
Open Russia cites a report of the federal agency stating that if Twitter does not block the account @openrussia_org within 24 hours, access to the social network to be suspended in Russia.
Roskomnadzor, Russia's federal censor, asked Twitter to block the account of Open Russia, the organization states.
In the request of the agency, which the movement cites, it is reported that if Twitter does not block the account @openrussia_org within 24 hours, Russia will prohibit access to the social network.
Twitter officially notified the organization of this request. Open Russia insists that there have been no illegal information posted in the account.
Earlier, Roskomnadzor also warned that resources, including online media, citing materials of the organizations recognized as 'undesirable' in Russia, will be blocked as well. As the agency stresses, "such an obligation occurs if these third-party resources are indicated in the formal request received from the Prosecutor General's Office."
