Russia government has warmed that there may be scary consequences after Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms removed Donald Trump, the outgoing President of the United States.
Russia further compared the actions of the platforms to a “nuclear blast in cyber space.”
Maria Zakharova, the country’s foreign ministry spokeswoman, said this on Facebook, adding that “It’s not the destruction that’s scary but the consequences.
“A blow has been dealt against democratic values proclaimed by the West.”
Owners of Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat and even Trump’s favourite social media platform, Twitter suspended his accounts last week following the deadly attack on the United States Capitol by the outgoing President’s supporters.
The attack on US capitol was said to have been Trump’s final push to stop the confirmation of the president-elect, Joe Biden as the November 3 presidential election winner by the Congress.
Twitter has now deleted the President’s account completely, depriving him of his favorite megaphone.
Trump’s social media ban was one more reason for American authorities to “take care” of their own country instead of criticizing Russia, Maria Zakharova,added.
This was in response to United States’ concern over a crackdown on independent media in Russia, among other issues.
