"Users need to know if the news they are reading comes from the sources that may be influenced by governments", the social network said.

The presence of state control over the media will be determined on the basis of the ownership structure of the publication, information about the management and employees, as well as from the sources of financing and income.

For example, there is already a mark on the RIA Novosti page that "this media is under the control of the Russian state".

At the end of May 2020, US President Donald Trump criticized the activities of the social networks. This happened after Twitter accompanied several Trump posts with the notes that it might contain inaccurate information. Trump praised these notes as an encroachment on freedom of speech.
