Russia warns Google against election 'interference'

Source: CNN

London (CNN Business)Google has been warned by Russia's state communications regulator to stop "advertising" protests on YouTube ahead of local elections in Moscow.

The watchdog, called Roskomnadzor, said in a letter to Google on Sunday that it considered advertisements and push notifications that publicize protests as "interference" in its domestic politics.

Tens of thousands of people rallied in Moscow over the weekend calling for fair local elections. More than 200 people were detained, according to OVD-Info, a group that monitors police.

Protesters have gathered in Moscow for five weekends in a row demanding that authorities allow independent candidates to take part in city's upcoming local elections. Some protests have been sanctioned by authorities.

2. Yes, amusing, isn't it?

(I'm going to bet that ultimately Putin et al. believe that what they did was just playing catch up, to some small degree, for all the indignities and humiliations caused by the US and NATO, however. It's highly ironic, but those steeped in their own grievance and self-pity seldom see irony.)

4. It's disinformation

Google has been one of Beijing and Moscow's best buddies, and they know it.

5. For what purpose? What facts do you base your opinion on?

I find it hard to believe that Google is a Sino-Russo stooge.

"Yeah we'll accept your web services but HERE is a list of web pages that must NEVER appear when users search for certain terms!" And Google falls right in line the money-grubbing toadies they are...

16. Do as I say,

NOT as I do. Putin does not want to see Russia elect a total idiot like tRump, so he is wielding his authority. The people need to stand up to tyranny.
