About it reported on the website of the department. This decision is justified by the alleged “censorship of the Russian media”.
In fact, on February 24, the social network Facebook restricted the official accounts of four Russian propaganda outlets, including the Zvezda TV channel and the Lenta.ru and Gazeta.ru Internet sites.
Roskomnadzor reports that it has sent requests to the administration of Meta Platforms, Inc. remove the restrictions imposed by the social network Facebook on Russian media and explain the reason for their introduction.
“The owners of the social network ignored the requirements of Roskomnadzor,” the RKN reports.
“In accordance with the decision of the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation regarding the social network Facebook, starting from February 25, 2022, Roskomnadzor, in accordance with the law, takes measures to partially restrict access,” the ministry said in a statement.
What is a partial restriction of access, the RKN did not specify.
