The Twitter administration has blocked 32,242 personal pages of Chinese, Turkish and Russian social network users due to suspicion of political propaganda. This was reported by the network’s press service.

"Today we are disclosing 32,242 accounts to our archive of state-linked information operations — the only one of its kind in the industry. The account sets we’re publishing to the archive today include three distinct operations that we have attributed to the People's Republic of China (PRC), Russia, and Turkey respectively. Every account and piece of content associated with these operations has been permanently removed from the service," the statement said.

According to Twitter, 23,750 of these accounts were related to users from China, 7,340 - Turkey, and 1,152 - Russia.

The administration of the social network claims that the accounts were used to distribute materials that were allegedly beneficial to the authorities of these countries.

As we reported earlier, the diplomats of the European Union are working on imposing sanctions against persons responsible for a cyberattack on German Bundestag in 2015.

“EU diplomats will this week start to work on sanctions against the people responsible for the cyber attack on the German Bundestag in 2015,” correspondent Rikard Jozwiak stated.
