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