The tension between America and Russia is growing. Facebook, Twitter and YouTube could be banned in Russia very soon. Here are the details.
This year has been quite unusual due to the COVID-19 outbreak. For some reason, we haven’t heard much about legal battles against internet giants this year. However, this seems different in 2021. A report recently appeared on Google’s actions against strict EU rules. Now, the Russian government is looking at some of the actions taken by some US giants such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. According to a recent report, the Russian government could ban these platforms in the country to ensure the safety of their users or to retaliate against US-based companies only.

According to a report by Financial Express, the Russian Parliament has drafted a bill against the aforementioned US tech giants. It will allow editors to block social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube. Of course, this will happen if these platforms are found guilty of censoring the content of the Russian people. With this law, parliament is planning to restrict some companies. This seems to be walking really fast to come true. After all, the law has already passed the lower house of parliament. In a statement made by the country’s parliament, it is stated that the relevant authorities will not give drugs to any company.
