Roskomnadzor demands from VKontakte to suppress involvement of children in protests

21 January , 09:27Society
Roskomnadzor demanded from the social network VKontakte to suppress the spread of appeals to underage users to participate in unauthorized rallies.

According to the department, the accounts used for these purposes have already been identified. At the request of the Prosecutor General's Office, Roskomnadzor (Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Telecom, Information Technologies and Mass Communications) notified the management of the social network to prevent the dissemination of information involving minors in unlawful actions dangerous to their life and health.

Previously, the same requirement was put forward for the popular today, mainly among young users, the TikTok platform. In addition, Roskomnadzor called on all social networks and the media to prevent the spread of such calls.

In 2019, we note that VKontakte blocked a number of communities with news about incidents with frank and hard photos and videos. These are the public pages "Bad News", "Bad News 18+", "Ax" and a number of others. They were read by at least three million people.

It's worth reminding that Roskachestvo (Russian quality system) told about a new type of hacking of VKontakte pages. Experts have recorded a phishing cyberattack on the accounts of users of this social network.
