MOSCOW, February 17. /TASS/. Russian media watchdog Roskomnadzor has requested that Twitter microblogging service clarifies its position on observing Russian laws, Roskomnadzor representative Vadim Ampelonsky told TASS on Tuesday.
"We sent the request on Friday [February 13]," Ampelonsky said, refusing to provide further details of the document.
On February 10, Roskomnadzor head Alexander Zharov said that Twitter does not observe Russian laws, including on countering extremism. "According to its [Twitter’s] official statistics report, the social network fulfilled almost 3,000 requests made by the US on user information. From 108 requests on users’ data made by Roskomnadzor, none were fulfilled," Zharov noted.
"Twitter consequentially does not observe the Russian laws, including on countering extremism. Roskomnadzor has a logical question on whether this is an appropriate position for a company operating on the Russian territory," he added.
Twitter social network is a microblogging service for public exchange of short messages. The company was set up in 2006.
