Lawmakers pass bill to restrict websites that ‘discriminate’ against Russian media

December 23, 2020

MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia’s lower house of parliament voted on Wednesday to pass legislation allowing authorities to block or restrict websites like YouTube if they “discriminate” against Russian media on their sites.

The authors of the legislation cited complaints from Russian media outlets RT and the RIA news agency about what they described as the “censorship” of their accounts on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.
