As noted in the social network, Twitter’s top priority is the safety of users, so the social network actively monitors the “risks associated with the conflict in Ukraine”, identifying attempts to spread “false and misleading information.”

The social network will also suspend advertising in Ukraine and Russia, so as not to prevent users from following important information related to public safety.

“For users using Twitter in Ukraine and Russia, we’ve also suspended some recommended tweets from people you don’t follow on the main feed to help reduce the spread of offensive content,” Twitter added.

On February 26, Roskomnadzor began to slow down the traffic of the social network Facebook in Russia due to censorship of Russian media on the platform.

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.

On the same day, Roskomnadzor announced a wave of fake publications on the Internet about a special operation carried out by Russia to protect Donbass. The department emphasized the obligation of the media and information resources to publish only official verified information.

They also reminded that the dissemination of knowingly false information provides for administrative liability under Art. 13.15 of the Code of Administrative Offenses and is punishable by a fine of up to 5 million rubles.
