The director of TikTok, Theo Bertram, who is responsible for government relations and public policy of the resource in Europe, told the American channel CNBC about this. The top manager considers the laws of the Russian Federation concerning video content to be “terrible”, but the administration of the service must reckon with the requirements of the country in which it operates.
TikTok's management is fighting cybercriminals who deliberately upload illegal content to protect the interests of its audience. During the first half of this year, the service management removed on its own initiative more than 104 million videos received from different parts of the world for violation of the user agreement or community rules.
