Facebook, in response to a statement by Roskomnadzor about political advertising on a social network on “Silence Day” and election day, noted that advertisers posting their content are responsible for complying with the election laws of a country.



It is reported by Interfax.

At the same time, the company clarified that if there are requests that a particular advertisement violates local laws, then this application is considered and appropriate measures are taken.

Google, in response to a statement by Roskomnadzor on the distribution of political advertising on "Silence Day" and election day, said that such advertising should not violate the laws of the territories it is targeting.

“We support responsible political advertising and expect that it must comply with local legal requirements, including election and suffrage laws and mandatory“ silence periods, ”for any geographic areas that such advertising is targeted at,” the company’s press service said. .

Earlier, Roskomnadzor revealed the spread of political advertising on Google, Facebook and YouTube in the days when it is legally prohibited in connection with the election.

The department noted that such actions can be considered as interference in the sovereign affairs of Russia. At the same time, ILV earlier sent requests to Google and Facebook to prevent the spread of political advertising on their platforms on September 7 and 8.

It was reported that the facts of violations by Google and Facebook during the elections in Russia will be transferred to the commission to investigate interference in the internal affairs of the country.

In late August, it became known that the State Duma commission to investigate the facts of interference in Russian affairs sent inquiries to all law enforcement agencies with a request to provide information on cases of interference.
