The lower chamber of the Russian parliament intends to draft amendments that would make it possible to hold Facebook and Google responsible for breaching Russian laws, chairman of the State Duma commission on foreign meddling in Russian affairs said Friday
"Apparently, the entire agenda is being shaped abroad, in the United States, there is no legally important office here [in Russia] that we can talk to. So there is need to work out legal initiatives so that such giants would be held responsible according to Russian laws," Vasilii Piskarev told reporters.
The lawmaker suggested using fines to influence the digital giants.
