Russia May Block Youtube And Instagram

Russia May Block Youtube And Instagram

The opposition leader also noted that Rybka's video filmed weeks before the 2016 U.S. election captured a conversation about former U.S. State Department employee Victoria Nuland, and connected the Deripaska-Prikhodko conversation to speculation that the oligarch could have been a link between the Russian government and the Trump campaign.

"Instagram made a decision to comply with Russian illegal censorship requests and deleted some content about oligarch Deripaska", tweeted Navalny.

Instagram has not yet commented on the matter but an anonymous source from YouTube claims that, whilst it has sent messages to those who uploaded the videos, it has not asked them to remove them.

Russia's media watchdog Roskomnadzor has ordered telecommunications service providers to block access to blogger Alexei Navalny's webpages containing personal information related to businessman Oleg Deripaska, the watchdog's press service told TASS.

Navalny has called for a boycott of Russia's Mar 18 presidential election after he was barred from running over a criminal conviction he says was politically motivated.

Kylie Jenner Reveals the Name of Her Newborn Baby Girl
There was no gotcha moment, no big paid reveal I had planned. "All she talks about is her baby girl". "It's incredible. Oddly enough, both the 20-year-old Jenner and 25-year-old Scott have middle names, Entertainment Weekly points out.


Navalny also posted a YouTube video featuring his Instagram posts. Her YouTube videos about relations with Deripaska were uploaded around that time, too.

On February 10, Deripaska's lawyers filed a lawsuit against Anastasia Vashukevich (Nastya Rybka), demanding that she remove 14 Instagram posts and seven videos that violate Deripaska's right to privacy under article 24 of the Russian Constitution.

Alexey Navalny, the key opposition figure in Russian Federation, said today that his site Navalny.com has been blocked in Russian Federation.

That an order from a local court in Russia's politicized judiciary would be dutifully followed by a major government agency raised immediate questions among Kremlin opponents about whether Mr. Deripaska, who has close ties to President Vladimir V. Putin and other Kremlin officials, had been acting on behalf of the government to silence Mr. Navalny. To limit access to services have been given until Wednesday night, February 14. It is possible he did not know they existed, but Rybka claims the two kept in touch after the yacht incident.

She claimed in a book she wrote that she was hired as an escort on Deripaska's boat, but her allegations weren't taken seriously until Navalny's expose last week, according to The New York Times. The "government" exception would apply to Prikhodko.
