Russia On Meta: According to a database of the Federal Service for Financial Monitoring (Rosfinmonitoring), Russia on Tuesday put US tech giant Meta on the list of terrorists and extremists. Meta is the parent company of Instagram and Facebook.
Facebook and Insta were banned at the end of March
In late March, Russia banned Facebook and Instagram for “perpetrating extremist activities”. A Moscow court rejected an appeal by META in June after being found guilty of “extremist activity” in Russia in March. In court, META’s lawyer at the time stated that META was not involved in extremist activity and was not against Russophobia.
Facebook owner Mark Zuckerberg was added to the list of 963 prominent Americans in May this year, including US President Joe Biden, who was banned from entering Russia. Significantly, Russia has taken this step at a time when it has again started attacks on Ukraine’s energy facilities.
