Watchdog sees 51 cases of Russian media censored since 2020

MOSCOW, Nov 24 (PRIME) -- The Russian communications service has registered 51 cases of censorship of the materials of the countryТs media and their official accounts by foreign online floors, like social networks and video hostings, since 2020 when their count started, a watchdog spokesperson told PRIME on Wednesday.

YouTube had 24 incidents, Facebook 13, Instagram eight, Twitter four, Google and TikTok one each, the authority said.

The materials of the countryТs media, like Sputnik, RT, and Anna News, broadcasting for the foreign audience, are abridged most frequently.

When blocking materials of Russian media and their accounts, moderators of foreign online resources as a rule provide no clear information on the reasons of muting, referring only to violation of the rules of a community or a website.

The regulator sent almost 60 letters to the foreign resources with a request to lift the restrictions, which has been done on 17 cases so far.
