Roskomnadzor has begun to form a unified register of social networks, which will be obliged to quickly identify and block “prohibited” information. “The innovations will make it possible to achieve the prompt removal of socially dangerous information that requires an immediate response, for example, trash streams and other socially dangerous content,” – said in a press release posted on the agency's website on Wednesday, September 22.

So far, the register includes eight social networks – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, Youtube, VKontakte, Odnoklassniki and Likee (a platform for short music videos). Roskomnadzor has sent appropriate notifications to the owners of Internet resources. The list does not include the Telegram messenger, which formally corresponds to the definition of “social network” used in the legislation.

Social Media Self-Monitoring Law

In February, a law on self-monitoring of social networks (No. 530-FZ) came into force in Russia, according to which social networks themselves are obliged to identify and block “prohibited” information. It includes “calls for riots, extremism, terrorism and participation in uncoordinated public events”, as well as content that “offends public morality” and expresses “clear disrespect for society, the state”, state bodies and its symbols.

On the eve of VKontakte, it blocked the accounts of several supporters of opposition leader Alexei Navalny in Russia, including Elvira Dmitrieva, who died two years ago. The press service of the social network explained this by the fact that VKontakte had already received two fines of 1.5 million rubles each for failing to remove calls to participate in rallies, and a repeated violation could result in a fine of one tenth of the annual proceeds.

Several days ago, YouTube, at the request of the authorities, removed several videos with Smart Voting lists from Navalny's channel. Earlier, the founder of Telegram, Pavel Durov, said that the messenger would restrict the work of bots associated with the election campaign from midnight on September 18, after which the Smart Voting bot was blocked, and before that, on September 16, the Smart Voting Telegram bot occurred on the website and DDoS attack. Users from Russia also reported that Google Docs was blocked after Smart Voting lists were published there.
