Russia to impose measures against TikTok, Telegram

Friday, 19. August 2022 15:32

Russia's Roskomnadzor said in a statement on Friday that measures will be taken against foreign social media platforms TikTok and Telegram, as well as Discord, Zoom, and Pinterest.

The companies did not remove content that Roskomnadzor deemed illegal, and the measures will remain in place until the companies comply with the watchdog's demands. The statement did not provide details as to which exact measures are to be imposed.

Russia has previously flagged Meta Platforms Inc's Facebook and Instagram as "extremist," and banned its platforms in June.
