Wednesday, 13. January 2021 12:02

The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs shared concerns over a "real blatant censorship" and "discriminatory actions of monopolists in the social media market" aimed at Russian media, according to a statement released by the ministry on Wednesday.

The ministry noted that Big Tech implemented an "absolutely clear political subtext aimed at implementing the foreign policy of the American government" that is allegedly designed to censor "those sources of information that represent an alternative view of world events."

"We do not give up hope that the principles of true democracy and freedom of speech will prevail," the statement said.
