MOSCOW, September 19 (Itar-Tass) – Facebook administration has contacted telecom watchdog Roscomnadzor to inform the agency that illegal content available on the social network was removed. After confirming, the watchdog announced that all its demands were met and thus the social network will be removed from the blacklist.

Earlier on Thursday, Facebook has been added to the Russian blacklist of prohibited websites, said Vladimir Pikov, representative of telecom watchdog Roscomnadzor. This meant that if in three days’ time the social network would not remove information which is prohibited in Russia, national internet service providers would have to block access to the social network, rendering the website unreachable to Russian internet users.
