Russian media regulator has sent letters to Google, Twitter and Facebook, which warns companies for violation of Internet laws in the country. According to the spokesman of Roskomnadzor said companies can be blocked in the country if they do not comply with the laws. Some critics of President Putin called these laws “censorship.” “In our letters regularly remind companies of the consequences of the violation of law,” said Vadim Ampelonski, Roskomnadzor spokesman.

The problem is that the encryption technology used by the three companies do not allow Russia to block a website. In this situation should be taken to larger scale actions, namely blocking the entire service.

The three companies has to transmit data for Russian bloggers who have more than 3,000 readers daily, and if Roskomnadzor decided that a website calling for “protests or unrest,” it must be removed.

Last year the government passed a law that entitles the Russian prosecutors to block websites with information about protests, without judgment. According to a law bloggers with more serious audience must have official registration in government agencies.

If companies do not pay more attention to the demands of the Russian government, sanctions will follow, explains Ampelonski.
