Twitter and Facebook can be blocked in minutes in Russia

According to the words of Maxim Ksenzov, the deputy head of the Russian Federal Service for Supervision of Mass Media, Twitter and Facebook can be blocked in minutes in the country and his agency “does not see big risks” in this. This news caused a great public outcry yesterday.

Today, after the words of Prime Minister that such statements are unacceptable, he was reprimanded. However, this does not negate the fact that he told the truth – to block these social networks in Russia only an order from the top is needed. Caricature by zhgun
