The Russian Foreign Ministry on Friday reacted to the US Embassy's website publication about venues and times of announced unauthorized actions in Russia, ​​saying that attempts of such "coverage" would be viewed as gross interference in Russia's affairs and would provoke a corresponding reaction.

Iran PressEurope: According to Sputniknews, earlier in the day, the US Embassy in Russia published the locations and times of uncoordinated actions in Russian cities on January 23, while urging Americans to avoid such events.

"Any attempts of such 'coverage' of unauthorized rallies will be considered as gross interference in the internal affairs of our country and will cause a corresponding reaction," a statement on the Telegram channel of the Russian diplomatic service said. The ministry pointed out that "such comprehensive data go beyond 'concerns' about their citizens in Russia."

"All this coincides with Washington's provocative doctrinal directives to stimulate 'protests in countries with governments they dislike,'" the Russian Foreign Ministry stressed.

Russia's media watchdog Roskomnadzor said on Thursday that it had revealed information calling for minors to participate in unauthorized mass events on social networks TikTok, Vkontakte, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube, and all of these six Internet sites are going to be fined for breaking the law. On Friday, Roskomnadzor reported that social networks were removing calls on children to participate in illegal mass actions, while YouTube and Vkontakte removed most of this information revealed.
