Russia’s communications regulator, Roskomnadzor, decided today to block access in Russia to the social network Facebook.

“On March 4, it was decided to block access to the social network Facebook, controlled by Meta, on the territory of the Russian Federation,” Roskomnadzor said in a statement, according to Interfax agency.

The Russian regulator already partially restricted access to Facebook at the end of February, a day after Russia launched its military offensive in Ukraine.

It explained then that it was taking this measure after the technology company restricted the official accounts of four Russian media: the military television channel Zvezda, the official RIA Novosti agency, the Lenta portal and the Gazeta.ru newspaper.
