Russia’s state communications regulator said on Monday it would extend its move to slow down Twitter until May 15.


It alo said that the US social media company was deleting content banned in Russia at a faster rate than it had been.


Earlier in March, Russia announced that it was slowing down the speed of Twitter in retaliation for what it described as a failure to remove banned content.


It also threatened to block the US platform outright if it did not comply with its deletion demands.
