MOSCOW, January 15 /TASS/. The Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Media (Roskomnadzor) will consider an appeal of St. Petersburg deputy Vitaly Milonov who asked to blacklist the French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo as extremist literature banned in Russia, Roskomnadzor’s press service told TASS on Thursday clarifying that it had not received the letter so far.
“Roskomnadzor has not received any appeals as of yet. It will be considered upon receipt in deadlines established by the law,” the source went on to say.
In his letter to Roskomnadzor’s Chief Alexander Zhukov, deputy Milonov wrote that the magazine was inciting inter-religious strife.
Roskomnadzor, a federal executive body responsible for overseeing the media, including the electronic media and mass communications, information technology and telecommunications, has discussed a series of preventive measures with representatives of federal and regional media outlets with regards to publication of materials, including religious caricatures, that may lead to inciting religious strife.
