Russia warns Google against election 'interference'

London (CNN Business) Google has been warned by Russia's state communications regulator to stop "advertising" protests on YouTube ahead of local elections in Moscow.

The watchdog, called Roskomnadzor, said in a letter to Google on Sunday that it considered advertisements and push notifications that publicize protests as "interference" in its domestic politics.

"Interference" = "allowing dissidents to have a voice we'd rather they not have"
