Meta slammed Russia’s plan to ban Facebook in the nation on Saturday, claiming that it was prompted by either Facebook’s fact-checking processes or its policy of labelling state-run media accounts.

After Facebook imposed restrictions on four Russian state-linked media outlets — the television network Zvezda, news agency RIA Novosti, and the websites Lenta.ru and Gazeta.ru — the Russian government announced on Friday that it will begin to “partially restrict” access to the social media platform.
Ordinary Russians are utilising Meta’s apps to express themselves and organise for action, according to Nick Clegg, Global Affairs VP of Meta.

“We want them to keep using Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger to make their voices known, communicate what’s going on, and organise,” he wrote.
