Anton Gorelkin, Deputy Head of the State Duma Committee on Information Policy, believes that the Twitch streaming service encourages Russophobia in every possible way and ignores the “landing” law, so Roskomnadzor should expect the introduction of the envisaged coercive measures against the platform by Roskomnadzor.
“The platform was one of the first to cut off the monetization of content for Russian streamers and encourages Russophobia in every possible way. At the same time, he continues to ignore the law “on landing”. I think that in the near future we should expect the regulator to introduce the envisaged coercive measures.”– Anton Gorelkin in his Telegram channel.
At the same time, he stressed that even in the event of a complete blocking of the platform, “which she certainly deserved with her actions, Russian users are unlikely to be very upset”. “In March, Twitch has already left a third of Russian-speaking streamers – they are switching to other services: Chinese Trovo and our WASD.TV”– Anton Gorelkin.
