Roskomnadzor blocked Google News


“Based on the request of the Prosecutor General’s Office of Russia, Roskomnadzor has restricted access to the News.Google Internet service in the country. The mentioned American Internet news resource provided access to numerous publications and materials containing unreliable socially significant information about the course of a special military operation on the territory of Ukraine,” the ministry said.

Google News is a free news aggregator provided and operated by Google Inc.

Earlier, Roskomnadzor reported that “YouTube video hosting, owned by the American company Google LLC, has become a tool in the anti-Russian information war. Recently, YouTube has repeatedly censored the channels of Russian media, public figures, creative teams, sports teams registered in accordance with the law, as well as educational projects aimed at a wide audience and covering key moments of Russian history. ”

Google employees fear that the company’s activities in Russia will be banned, including because of the YouTube video hosting, which “has become a serious source of tension in relations with the Russian government,” Bloomberg writes, citing anonymous sources.

Roskomnadzor warned that under Russian law, the public dissemination of deliberately false information about the actions of the Russian army is a criminal offense.
