MOSCOW (Reuters) – Twitter and Facebook have nine months to comply with data law by moving Russian user data onto servers in Russia, Interfax cited communications watchdog head Alexander Zharov as saying on Tuesday.

Zharov was also quoted as saying he hoped Russia would not end up blocking Twitter and Facebook.
