Russia says Meta, Google should be held accountable for ‘inciting war’

According to the Interfax news agency, Russia’s Foreign Ministry stated on Tuesday that a mechanism should be established to make western tech firms, like Meta Platforms Inc and Alphabet’s Google, accountable for “inciting conflict.”

Roskomnadzor, Russia’s state communications regulator, also asked that foreign internet operators stop discriminating against Russian media in Europe.

Google and Meta are among the internet businesses that might face penalties in Russia for failing to build local offices and perform other steps required by a communications legislation.
