MOSCOW, March 10 – RIA Novosti. Roskomnadzor notified Twitter of the slowdown in its work in Russia and the possibility of a complete blocking, the department told RIA Novosti.
Roskomnadzor sent a letter to the social network administration. It says that since March 10, the department has slowed down the speed of Twitter “in order to protect Russian citizens and force the Internet service to comply with the law on the territory of” the country. These measures were taken by the federal service for gross violation of the requirements for the removal of prohibited content.
If the administration of the social network continues to ignore the requirements of Roskomnadzor, access to Twitter may be completely restricted. At the same time, the department emphasized that the task of completely blocking the service is not worth it now, but it is possible.
“The administration of the social network has not responded to the letter, it has not yet contacted Roskomnadzor,” said Roskomnadzor.
The department added that the duration of the restrictive measures depends on how quickly the administration of the social network will fulfill the requirements for the removal of illegal content.
