Russia Tightens Social Media Restrictions amid Ukraine Invasion

Russia Tightens Social Media Restrictions amid Ukraine Invasion

The Index Today

As the Kremlin Moves forward with its full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the government has taken to restricting access to social media platforms in parts of Russia.

Confirming the same, Twitter said in a statement, “We're aware that Twitter is being restricted for some people in Russia and are working to keep our services safe and accessible.”

This comes after Russia’s communications watchdog Roskomnadzor clamped down on Facebook for allegedly breaching the “the rights and freedoms of Russian citizens.” This move came in response to the social media giant’s refusal to halt fact-checking and labelling content from state-operated news media.

It remains unclear whether this move will also affect access to other Meta-owned platforms like WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook Messenger.

Roskomnadzor is yet to announce actions against Twitter in Russia.
