Russia demands Google take action over protest videos

" Russia's media oversight agency has demanded Google take action to stop the spread of information about illegal mass protests. Thousands of its YouTube channels livestreamed one of Russia's biggest demos on Saturday.

Russia's media regulator on Sunday asked Google to stop sending push notifications for livestream videos of anti-government protests and arrests.

Roskomnadzor said it complained to Google about unspecified "structures" allegedly using tools, such as push notifications, to spread information about illegal mass protests, "including those aimed at disrupting elections."

Under pressure

The Russian watchdog said that if Google failed to respond to its request, it would consider it "interference in its sovereign affairs" and "hostile influence [over] and obstruction of democratic elections in Russia."

Moscow would then reserve the right to react "appropriately," it said, without elaborating. "
