RUSSIA: BLOCKING OF TELEGRAM APPLICATION

RUSSIA, 13/04/2018

Vienna, 13 April 2018 The Vienna-based South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO), is extremely concerned about a decision by a District Court in Moscow to block messaging and social networking application Telegram in  Russia.

One day earlier on 12 April the State Duma adopted amendments to the Law on Information, Information Technologies and Protection of Information which is a new step against freedom of information in Russia. According to this decision, social media among other things must prevent and remove publication of content that aims revealing state and any other secrets protected by law and also remove any unverified publicly significant information presented as reliable information upon authorities’ demand.

SEEMO is a network of editors, media executives and leading journalists in South, East and Central Europe
