Roskomnadzor sent a notification to the social network TikTok to remove videos about Donbass and any content of a military or political nature from recommendations for a children’s audience.
“In the social network TikTok, Roskomnadzor identified content on the subject of a special military operation in Ukraine, as well as related political content, purposefully offered to a children’s audience. At the same time, these materials in most cases have a pronounced anti-Russian character, ”the report says.
Earlier today, Roskomnadzor demanded that Google limit messages in Google Ads about alleged mass casualties among the Russian military in Ukraine and civilians. The department warned that they would block resources that violate the law at the request of the Prosecutor General’s Office, and transfer materials on violations to the Investigative Committee in order to bring the owners of the resources to criminal liability.
On February 26, Twitter announced that it had suspended ads in Russia and Ukraine in order not to distract people from public safety information. The social network also suspended recommendations for tweets from people whom the user does not follow in order to reduce the spread of offensive content. Yandex previously reported that it began to warn about possible fakes for requests related to Ukraine.
On February 24, Russia launched a military operation in the Donbass. Its goal, Russian President Vladimir Putin called the protection of people who “are subjected to bullying, genocide by the Kiev regime.” At the same time, he noted that Russia has no plans to occupy Ukraine, but Moscow will strive for the demilitarization and denazification of this country. In connection with the operation in Ukraine, the US, EU, UK, Canada and other countries have imposed sanctions against Russia.
