“In accordance with the decision of the Prosecutor General’s Office regarding the social network Facebook, starting from February 25, 2022, Roskomnadzor, in accordance with the law, takes measures to partially restrict access in the form of slowing down traffic,” the agency said.

On February 24, Facebook censored materials from four Russian media outlets — Zvezda, RIA Novosti, Lenta.ru, and Gazeta.ru.

According to Roskomnadzor, the administration of the social network marked the materials of the above-mentioned Russian media as unreliable and imposed technical restrictions on the search results of their publications in order to reduce the readership.
