Dubai – Masaader News

Google and Facebook had allowed political advertising during Russian regional elections despite being asked to ban such publicity, according to Reuters.

Russia is holding regional elections on Sunday, including in Moscow, after the exclusion of many opposition candidates triggered big protests in the Russian capital over the past several weeks.

Roskomnadzor said on Friday it asked Facebook and Google to ban the publication of political advertising during elections on Sunday and on the preceding day, in line with Russian law.
