Russia May Block Youtube And Instagram

Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny shown here in Strasbourg last month recently published an investigation about metals magnate Oleg Deripaska

Navalny claims the holiday on the billionaire's yacht amounts to a "bribe", and points to a relationship between Deripaska and Manafort, suggesting the two Russians may have been discussing the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Sergei Prikhodko has not denied the authenticity of the video/photo/audio materials or any of Rybka's claims regarding his appearance and behavior on Deripaska's yacht.

Roskomnadzor announced around midday on February 14 that "nearly 30 resources" had deleted Navalny's video from their sites. "We review such requests carefully in light of local laws and where appropriate, we make it unavailable in the relevant country or territory", an Instagram spokesperson told TheWrap.

The Russian government sided with Deripaska in a lawsuit claiming Navalny violated his right to privacy, and started to pressure tech companies this week to remove the posts.

Navalny has called for a boycott of Russia's Mar 18 presidential election after he was barred from running over a criminal conviction he says was politically motivated.

Roskomnadzor confirmed in a statement on Thursday it had ordered telecoms operators to block Navalny's site because the offending material was still there.




Deripaska, in a statement last week, accused Navalny and others of spreading lies about him and was reported to have obtained a court order in southern Russian Federation to have the offending material removed.

"An oligarch takes a top government official on a ride on his own yacht - that's a bribe", Navalny says in the video. To limit access to services have been given until Wednesday night, February 14. At the time of this publication, https://navalny.com could not be accessed on Polygraph.info's computers in Washington, DC.

The country has said it could block the platforms if the images and videos are not removed, according to The New York Times.

She has more than 60,000 followers on Instagram where she has posted scantily-clad or naked snaps of herself and a video of herself having sex. It also demanded that YouTube remove the Navalny clip.

One particularly notorious use of this exception occurred in March 1999, when state-controlled Russian television aired a video showing, in its words, "a man resembling" then Prosecutor General Yury Skuratov, in bed with two prostitutes. The court instructed Russia's communications watchdog, Roskomnadzor, to enforce its decision.
