head of Roskomnadzor Alexander Zharov, made it clear that it is very necessary that everyone complies to the rule .

He said:

Everyone needs to abide by the law. In 2018, everything will be as it should be for sure.

In any case, we will either get the law implemented or the company will cease to work on the territory of the Russian Federation as unfortunately happened to LinkedIn. There can’t be any exceptions here.

We understand clearly that Facebook has a significant number of users on the territory of the Russian Federation.

On the other hand, we understand that this is not a unique service, and that there are other social media.
