Russian media watchdog to block media citing ‘undesirable’ organizations
"Such an obligation occurs if these third-party resources are indicated in the formal request received from the Prosecutor General's Office."
The Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology, and Mass Media (Roskomnadzor) warns that resources, including online media, where materials of organizations recognized as undesirable in Russia will be posted, will be blocked. 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."
On October 12, Roskomnadzor blocked the site of Open Russia. The Prosecutor General's Office believes that the organization's activities "are aimed at inspiring protest protests" and "destabilizing the domestic political situation". Open Russia does not constitute itself "undesirable".
Today, the movement reported that Roskomnadzor demanded from Twitter to block the account of Open Russia (@openrussia_org) within 24 hours. Otherwise, Twitter will be blocked in the territory of Russia.
Twitter officially notified the organization of the request. Open Russia insists that there is no illegal information posted in the account.
