YouTube facilitates protests Russian media agency complains

Russia’s press surveillance organisation Sunday said that they intended Google to prevent YouTube consumers from publishing unbundled political protests or that the state of Russia would most significant to repress the US business.

The Federal Service of Telecom Supervision, Information Technology and Mass Communications or Roskomnadzor expressed requirement for the Moscow elections after decades of protests.

Tens of thousands engaged in the fourth successive night demonstrations, according to the police and the organisation attending government sessions, excluding some autonomous and opposing applicants from the local election vote.

In contrast to the demonstrations held during the two previous weeks when the police arrested more than 1,000 people, organisers had a license for the event on Saturday. On Saturday after several rally participants shifted the protest from its sanctioned location to the heart of the Russian capital, more than 200 persons were reported arrested.

Roskomnadzor said on Saturday; Google inquired about unknown “buildings,” including those designed to harm national and regional elections. Roskomnadzor said that it used its records with the video-sharing platform to submit push notifications about unsanctioned meetings to Google in a note. If the California-based Internet company does not deal with that problem, Russia would be entitled to take legal action, the organisation said in a declaration.

“The Russian Federation would regard this as an interference with the sovereign relations of the state and also as aggressive and impeding democratic elections in Russia if Google were not to adopt aggressive action and retain for itself the power to appropriate reaction,” Roskomnadzor emphasised in his email.

The brave resistance to the preservation of some applicants from the elections in Moscow seems to have unresolved Russian officials.

The Saturday rally drew an approximate audience of over 50,000 individuals, which was Moscow’s biggest participant in several years ‘ protest. In several other towns, smaller demonstrations took place.

In the latest years, Russia has taken a sequence of initiatives to boost internet monitoring.

A law passed this year requires the routing on Russian servers of internet traffic, which critics claim could result in firewalls like China’s system, blocking political content and preventing Chinese users from using sites like Facebook, Twitter and Google.
