The Federation Council believes that Facebook has blocked the project RT under the US pressure

The subsidiary project RT in the Now was blocked by Facebook under pressure from the us authorities, said the head of the Federation Council Committee on constitutional law Andrei Klishas.

In his opinion, it is impossible to imagine that a large company on its own initiative “took action, deliberately devaluing its business reputation and reducing its capitalization.”

“The blocking of the pages of RT projects without any prior warning and attempts to get an explanation, was obviously carried out under the influence of the us authorities, there can be no other explanation for such aggressive actions of the social network,” RIA Novosti quotes Senator.

Earlier in the Kremlin expressed the hope that RT will be able to defend their rights in the situation with the closure of Facebook pages.
