Russia bans Facebook

Russia announced Friday it is blocking Facebook in the country, according to its communications regulator.

 “In March 2022, a decision was made to block access to the Facebook network (owned by Meta Platforms, Inc.) in the Russian Federation,” the statement said.  

In response, Meta president Nick Clegg said the company was doing “everything we can to restore our services” but that soon Russian users would be cut off from reliable information.
