Russia’s Internet watchdog has demanded that Twitter delete the account held by the ‘Open Russia’ movement, viewed as an undesirable group in Russia, and has threatened to ban access to the whole microblog service if Twitter does not comply.

Open Russia’s press service on Wednesday told Interfax that Roskomnadzor had sent Twitter a notice that its services will be blocked on the territory of the Russian Federation if it does not delete Open Russia’s account within 24 hours. According to the press service, Twitter had forwarded the document to Open Russia, pointing out that the demand was in line with the order of the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office, to limit public access to websites displaying illegal information.

Representatives of the Open Russia movement also commented on Interfax that they had addressed Twitter with their own letter, in which they claimed that the group was not violating any laws and further alleged that Roskomnadzor’s letter was violating people’s right to free speech.
