    Russian President Vladimir Putin has urged people not to use the Google search engine, saying that it is a CIA project.

    He was speaking at a media forum in St.Petersburg

    He told the audience that Google collects users’ personal data and then sends it to the servers based in the US.

    Russia’s parliament passed a law earlier this week requiring social media websites to keep their servers in Russia.
