Russian Court Named Meta an “Extremist Organization”
The Tverskoy Court of Moscow named the company Meta, which owns the social networks Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, an “extremist organization”.
According to the court decision, social networks Facebook and Instagram will be immediately blocked in Russia, but this requirement does not apply to the WhatsApp messenger.
The prosecutor’s office emphasized that the use of Facebook and Instagram by citizens of the Russian Federation and legal entities should not be considered as participation in extremist activities.
But the Network Freedoms channel noted that there are still restrictions for users – buying ads on Instagram and Facebook can be regarded as financing an extremist organization, and any distribution of links to social networks or business cards with contacts on Instagram and Facebook is also prohibited.
On February 24, Russia carried out a paramilitary invasion of Ukraine on several fronts, shelling Kharkiv, Kyiv, Sumy, Chernihiv, Vinnytsia and other cities of various calibres.
The Ukrainian army is holding back the invasion of the enemy. From the hottest spots, the civilian population is trying to evacuate to other cities or even countries.
The world community organized to help the refugees and the Ukrainian army. Only the crypto community has transferred billions of dollars to help Ukrainians.
The BTC-Alpha team together with trusted volunteer communities created a charity fund ‘Alpha for Ukraine’. You can make a donation to help everyone in Ukraine who needs medicines, humanitarian aid and to support the defence of the country.
