Roskomnadzor threatened Google with slowing traffic if the company does not actively remove content banned in Russia within 24 hours from its sites. This is reported by TASS. As the department notes, Google does not remove from 20 to 30% of links to prohibited content – thus the company leads in the number of “failed illegal illegal content”, which “directly harms Russian users”.
As an example, Roskomnadzor reported that on YouTube there were 3,5 thousand videos “calling for extremism” — blocked only one and a half thousand. It is noteworthy that today it became known about Google‘s lawsuit against Roskomnadzor.
In it, the company asks to recognize the requirements of the RKN illegal. The lawsuit was issued by the American office – it is assumed that because of the expectation to lose the court in Russia and try to challenge it in other instances like Europe.
If Roskomnadzor starts to slow down Google, as it did with Twitter, it will affect all the services of the company — from mail and search engine, to YouTube and many other platforms of the corporation.
