Russia threatens to ban Facebook twitter and Google

Towards the end of last week, Russian government agency Roskomnadzor  that oversees media and communications, threatened to block access to facebook, twitter and Google if the social media giant fail to hand over data on certain Russian bloggers.

The Russian government agency wanted  facebook, twitter and  Google, hand over data for users, specifically Russian bloggers with more than 3,000 daily readers . Rozkomnadzor also asked the social media giants to delete the information which encourages protests and other unauthorized public events.

The Russian President Vladimir Putin promised not place the Internet under government control,  in 2014, a law passed  allowing the  Russian prosecutors the right to block sites without a court ruling incase if those sites hold content about protests unauthorized  by the government.

The Russian government could join countries like Burma, North-korea, Saudi Arabia and China for instance in April twitter was temporarily banned by the Turkish government because of showing pictures for the death of a Turkish procecutor.

However, its not yet clear if the social network giants will comply with the demand of the Russian government agency.
