Fake News from Russia: RBC, Gazeta.ru and Mash published fake news

Roskomnadzor – the federal agency of IT and Mass Communication in Russia for the first time published a list of resources on which fake news is regularly published under the guise of reliable messages. It includes groups in social networks of two large network media (RBC with 700+ thousand users and Lenta.ru with 130+ thousand), several large publics (Mash, Lentach and MDK with 11 million subscribers), regional groups and accounts individuals. But the list is open, those who fall into it are still threatened with blockages and large fines – and, as it turned out, undeserved reputation damage.

The law on countering the spread of fakes, adopted at the beginning of the year, caused a lot of fears and questions. By publishing the list, Roskomnadzor demonstrates that it intends to use it exactly as the authorities promised – to deal with dangerous rumours.

  • The law does not apply to traditional media – print, television and radio – and news aggregators. In addition, reposts were removed from under it.
  • Internet media can “immediately” delete a false message after notifying Roskomnadzor without blocking, regular Internet resources, user accounts and blogs should be blocked “immediately”.
  • For the distribution of fakes, citizens face a fine of 30,000(up to USD 500) to 100,000(up to USD 1500) rubles, for repeated violation – from 100,000 (USD 1500) to 300,000(USD 4500) rubles. If this resulted in “death of a person, harm to human health or property, mass violation of public order”, citizens may be fined 300-400 thousand rubles(between USD 4500 to USD 6500), legal entities – from 1 million to 1.5 million rubles.

The list published by Roskomnadzor included 27 resources – all of them are listed below:
