Roskomnadzor dissatisfied with formal answers on Facebook and Twitter

Roskomnadzor continues to fight with Facebook andTwitter, moving to a new level of relationship. Due to the vagueness of the companies' responses to the requirements, the service opened administrative proceedings. Now social networks have a month to fulfill the requirements of Roskomnadzor. The service requires specifying the localization of future databases and clear deadlines for meeting all requirements.

Recall that the case concerns compliance with the law of 2015, which obliged all companies working with Russians to use personal data bases in Russia for storing personal data.

Roskomnadzor began with the war with Facebook and Twitter withcomprehensive inspection at the end of last year, then there were several more checks, letters of demands and threats of a fine of 5 thousand rubles for not responding letters. In January, the companies nevertheless sent their explanations to the requests of the department, but without specifying specific plans and deadlines for localizing the databases of Russian users in the Russian Federation.
