Instagram to be blocked soon in Russia

The Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Media, abbreviated as Roskomnadzor, has announced that Instagram will soon be blocked in Russia.

The announcements come after Meta, which is Instagram and Facebook’s parent company, said it would adjust its terms of service to allow users to post certain calls to violence against Russians — such as “death to the Russian invaders” — in some countries.

Facebook is already blocked in Russia.

WhatsApp, which is also owned by Meta, will not be blocked, according to State Duma Deputy Alexander Khinshtein.
