Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev linked the difficult international relations with the fact that his Twitter account was marked as a state one, reports TASS.
“My account, like the accounts of a number of other people, is now marked as public. Despite the fact that, in fact, I was not registered there as a state person, and he is not even connected with my direct activities. But they thought it right to do so, ”the agency quotes Medvedev as saying.
The politician’s Twitter page, where he has over 4.6 million subscribers in the Russian-language version, is labeled “Government account, Russia.”
In a conversation with reporters, Dmitry Medvedev noted that social networks are making similar decisions on labeling accounts for users from “countries with which relations are not very easy.”
Other topics that were discussed in an interview with media representatives were vaccination against coronavirus, international and domestic politics, the situation in the post-Soviet space, the activities of the Russian Security Council.
Earlier it was reported that Dmitry Medvedev offered to reimburse the costs of using the Internet to families with low incomes. According to the chairman of United Russia, low-income families from the regions asked for help in paying for communication services and expressed a desire for an accessible Internet.
At the end of December, the government introduced a bill to the Duma, according to which Internet providers in Russia will have to provide their users with free access to socially significant Internet resources. The list includes sites for the provision of social services, online portals for learning, portals for parents and children, popular social networks and online versions of leading media.
