Meta has announced the ban of Russian state media from running ads or monetizing content on its platforms. This is according to a tweet by the Head of Meta’s Security, Nathaniel Gleicher.
According to the tweet, “We are now prohibiting Russian state media from running ads or monetizing on our platform anywhere in the world. We also continue to apply labels to additional Russian state media.”
“These changes have already begun rolling out and will continue into the weekend. We are closely monitoring the situation in Ukraine and will keep sharing steps we’re taking to protect people on our platform.”
The ban was made following the announcement by the Roskomnadzor Russia’s federal executive agency responsible for monitoring, controlling and censoring its mass media
on Friday that it will begin to “partially restrict” access to Facebook in Russia.
