Activists accuse Kremlin of trying to silence social media

Russia’s Internet watchdog has asked Facebook to block a page promoting a protest in support of government critic Alexei Navalny.

Activists say the agency has also tried to block similar pages on a Russian social network.

Navalny is currently on trial for fraud, charges he says are politically motivated.
