The head of the department for control and supervision in the field of electronic communications of Roskomnadzor, Yevgeny Zaitsev, said that the department was ready to conduct a dialogue with the social network Twitter, but its representatives did not get in touch.

Zaitsev indicated that the department's claims to Twitter remain unanswered.

"We are ready for dialogue, we know all the responsible persons of Twitter, and they know us ... there are claims related to the distribution of illegal content. They did not comply with the legal requirements of the Russian authorities, in connection with which we took the measures prescribed by law. But our claims remain unanswered, no one came to us, there are no answers to our questions... In any case, they can challenge all their counter claims in the Russian court, we are ready for any dialogue, if only there was it", - RIA Novosti quotes the words of the head management.

Twitter executives said they were concerned about "increasing attempts to block and restrict public discussion on the Internet". Roskomnadzor considered the statements absurd.

Later it became known that access to the Twitter microblogging service for users from Russia would be forcibly slowed down from March 10 in order to force the administration of the service to comply with Russian legislation.

After that, the websites of a number of Russian state authorities were inaccessible. We are talking about the websites of the president of the country, the government, the State Duma and the Federation Council, Roskomnadzor and the Ministry of Economy. There was a failure in the work of Rostelecom, one of the largest Russian providers, and the site of Roskomnadzor itself.
