Russian watchdog notifies Facebook of full-scale check in Jul–Dec

MOSCOW, Feb 8 (PRIME) -- The Russian communications service has informed U.S. social network Facebook of conducting a comprehensive check in July–December, the Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology, and Mass Media said on Thursday on its Web site.

“The service and Facebook agreed to exchange necessary information as part of preparation for the comprehensive check,” the watchdog said after a meeting of the service’s Director Alexander Zharov with representatives of Facebook.

In November 2017, Zharov said that Facebook planned to discuss issues of localization of data of Russian users inside the country and a quick deletion of banned content.

The service threatened to block Facebook regardless of its huge audience if the social network fails to respect the Russian law obliging companies to store personal data of Russians on the country’s territory.
