MOSCOW, March 10 – RIA Novosti. Social networks operating in Russia should not prepare for blocking, no one plans to block them, and Twitter fell under the traffic slowdown because it categorically refuses not only to comply with Russian laws, but even to conduct a dialogue on this matter, said Anton Gorelkin, a member of the State Duma Committee on Information Policy …
Roskomnadzor decided from March 10 to slow down the speed of Twitter in Russia by 100% of mobile devices and 50% of stationary devices, according to the agency's website. The decision is due to the fact that the service, from 2017 to the present, does not remove content that incites minors to commit suicide, containing child pornography, as well as information about the use of drugs.
“Twitter fell under the traffic slowdown because it categorically refuses not only to comply with Russian laws, but even to conduct a dialogue on this matter. This position is unique in its radicalism,” Gorelkin wrote on his Telegram channel on Wednesday.
According to him, “all other social networks maintain contact with Russian government departments and, with varying degrees of success, build a dialogue.” “There is no reason to block them,” he concluded.
