Russian Foreign Ministry's spokesperson Maria Zakharova claimed on Thursday that American social media companies' decision to block accounts of United States President Donald Trump can be compared to a "nuclear explosion in a cyber environment."

Zakharova criticized the possibility of the companies including Facebook and Twitter to ban the country's president's accounts without even needing a court order or any other procedure.

The spokesperson further stressed that even US allies were worried about such actions, noting German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire, UK Health Minister Matt Hancock and several others expressed concerns on the issue.
