Accusing Facebook and Twitter of defying the law of the land, the Russian government has opened legal proceedings against the social media giants for not complying to local data protection laws.

According to a report in RT.com late Monday, Roskomnadzor, the Russian censorship agency, said that Facebook and Twitter failed to comply with a law requiring all servers that store personal data to be located in the country.

“The tech giants instead handed ‘formal answers’ to the authorities’ previous inquiries. The agency also pledged to take legal action against the internet companies,” said the report.

Russian privacy laws require foreign online service providers to store users’ personal data on servers located within the country.

“Facebook and Twitter are reportedly negotiating the issue with Russian authorities, as the companies have not yet moved their servers to Russia,” added the report.

Roskomnadzor sent letters to Facebook and Twitter on December 17, giving them 30 days to provide “a legally valid response”.
