Russia's federal censor concerned by censorship in Google
The department is concerned by removal materials of Federal News Agency (FNA) from search results.
Russian communication watchdog Roskomnadzor published the message stating the department “guards freedom of speech and in every possible way interferes with any manifestations of censorship”.
As it is explained in the release, the publication is caused by the fact that Google News service removed materials of Federal News Agency (FNA) from search results. Roskomnadzor expresses “its concern” in this relation, it is said in the statement.
Earlier, on November 2, the FAN reported that their materials were gone from service delivery. The management of the portal in this regard complained to the head of Roskomnadzor Aleksey Zharov.
In their turn, representatives of Google confirmed that materials of the FAN were really removed from search results. Other details, in particular about the reasons of such decision, are not provided in the message of the company.
Meanwhile, earlier RBC wrote that the FAN is connected with businessman Evgeny Prigozhin and Factory of trolls which staff is engaged in writing of the pro-Russian posts in social networks and comments on the websites of media.
