Roskomnadzor, the communications regulator in Russia, has blocked the news aggregation service in this country – Google News.
The Russian federal executive agency responsible for monitoring, controlling, and censoring Russian mass media, has accused Google’s service of providing access to fake materials about operations in Ukraine, Reuters reports.
“We have confirmed that certain people have difficulty accessing the Google News application and website in Russia, and the reason is not a technical problem on our part,” Google said in a statement.
Google points out that it has worked hard to make information services, such as News, available to users in Russia for as long as possible.
New Russian laws have led to the criminalization of the distribution of “deliberately false information” about the operations of state entities.
