Russia and China to sign agreement on combating illegal online content

MOSCOW, Oct 8 (Reuters) - Russia’s state communications watchdog will sign an agreement with its Chinese counterpart this month as part of cooperation to combat the circulation of what it calls illegal online content, it said on Tuesday.

Critics have accused Russia’s authorities of trying to implement Chinese-style curbs on the internet. Cooperation in this area between the two regulators could alarm Russian proponents of internet freedom. (Reporting by Nadezhda Tsydenova; writing by Tom Balmforth; Editing by Kevin Liffey)
