MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Russia's media watchdog Roskomnadzor urged AppStore and Google Play to stop distributing an application linked to jailed opposition activist Alexei Navalny's Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK, an extremist foreign agent organisation banned in Russia).
"Roskomnadzor demanded that AppStore and Google Play stop distributing the application of an organisation recognised as extremist and banned on the territory of the Russian Federation. This application is used to continue activities and to hold events of the Anti-Corruption Foundation," Roskomnadzor said in a statement on 2 September.
The request is based on the demand of the Russian Prosecutor General's Office. The failure to take action entails administrative responsibility and can be considered "election interference," the watchdog warned.
