Google Colludes With Russian Government To Delete Links, Censor Russian Activists Reader 02/09/2019 (Sat) 15:39:34 Id: 11b70e [Preview] No. 13934
Russian news reports say that Google has agreed with national authorities to delete links to websites banned in Russia.

The daily Vedomosti reported Thursday that Google has reached an agreement with the Russian state media oversight agency, Roskomnadzor, to regularly receive updated lists of banned sites and delete links to them upon review. The newspaper says Google has already removed about 70 percent of the banned websites from its search results.

The RIA Novosti news agency quoted Roskomnadzor as saying it has established a “constructive dialogue” with Google.

Last December, Roskomnadzor fined Google 500,000 rubles ($7,600) for failing to delete links to the banned sites. It threatened to cut access to Google if it fails to comply with the demand.

“We’re committed to enabling access to information for the benefit of our users in Russia and around the world,” Google spokesman Nu Wexler said. The company offered no further official comment.

This is exactly the reason I still truly believe that the Russian investigations are actually political "witch hunts" and when you see the irony its pretty obvious. The Clintons did deals with Russia selling American uranium. John Podesta's brother, Tony Podesta, has lucrative business deals with both Russia and Ukrainian lobbying groups associated with Russia. Enriched in rubles. We now see these American Big Tech firms dealing with Russia.... and yet, the only ones who get investigated are associated with conservatives or to a conservative party? Its downright hypocritical and the only common sense conclusion to the hypocrisy is that it is indeed deliberate, meaning it is all political.
