moscow - Russia is again threatening Facebook with a blockade. The Russian Supervisor wants to investigate whether the site is in keeping with Russian law. In September Russia was also threatened with a ban on January 1.
Russia claims that data about Russian users is stored on servers in Russia. Officially, it must protect the privacy of Russians, but critics see it as an attempt to mull people on social media. Russia previously blocked LinkedIn, a Microsoft subsidiary.
The threat of Russia comes a few days after a hearing with Facebook in the US Senate. In that, Facebook and other social media talked about Russian attempts to influence American voters in the recent presidential elections. Russia would like to stumble into turmoil.
