Russia announced that will partially block Facebook
Russia’s telecoms regulator Roskomnadzor announced this Friday that it would limit access to all apps in the Meta group, which includes Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp.
Cited by Reuters, the regulator said the decision is a response to what it considers to be “censorship” by Facebook.
On Thursday, the Meta group restricted some Russian media outlets because it believed they were spreading disinformation, propaganda and hate speech against the Ukrainian people.
Despite promising to restrict access to these applications, there is still no concrete data on what these restrictions will be in practice.
