Russian media prohibited from displaying Meta, Facebook, Instagram logos

Russian media should not display the logos of Meta Platforms and its social networks Facebook and Instagram, Russia’s telecommunications watchdog Roskomnadzor stated for TASS. Roskomnadzor further noted that Russian media must label Meta as a banned organisation. Facebook and Instagram will be removed from the register of social networks in Russia, while Meta will be excluded from the list of foreign entities operating on the internet.

Earlier in the day, Moscow’s Tverskoy District Court recognised the activities of Facebook and Instagram as extremist and banned the operations of their parent company, Meta Platforms, in Russia.
