Roskomnadzor (Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Telecom, Information Technologies and Mass Communications) sent a notice to YouTube demanding the restriction of access to the channel of the opposition leader Alexey Navalny, Leonid Volkov (pictured) and Vladimir Milov.

As Volkov wrote on his Twitter page, Roskomnadzor is demanding that his account be blocked due to "incitement to mass riots" and "extremist activities." The Prosecutor General's Office demands to restrict access to Volkov's YouTube channel, believing that the channel disseminates "unreliable socially significant information under the guise of reliable information." Roskomnadzor indicated that Volkov must "immediately" remove all illegal information, otherwise YouTube may block him. Note that the Volkov channel has 123 thousand subscribers.

In addition, the department insists on blocking Vladimir Milov. What he himself wrote on Twitter.

We will remind, on the eve it became known that at the request of the Prosecutor General's Office Roskomnadzor blocked the site of Navalny himself According to the register of blocked sites, the blocking was enabled on June 15 on the basis of article 15.3, according to which sites that contain “calls for mass riots”, “extremist activities” or participation in “illegal mass events” are blocked.
