Euractive general - 16 ore 50 min fa

Russia's media watchdog has written to Google, Twitter and Facebook warning them against violating Russian Internet laws and a spokesman said Thursday (21 May) that they risk being blocked if they do not comply with the rules.

Roskomnadzor said it had sent letters this week to the three US-based firms asking them to comply with Internet laws which critics of President Vladimir Putin have decried as censorship.

"In our letters we regularly remind (companies) of the consequences of violating the legislation," said spokesman Vadim Ampelonsky.
