NEW YORK, March 1. /TASS/. Meta, the owner of Facebook and Instagram, will restrict access to accounts of Russia’s RT TV Channel and Sputnik news agency in the European Union, Vice President of Meta Nick Clegg tweeted.
"We have received requests from a number of Governments and the EU to take further steps in relation to Russian state controlled media. Given the exceptional nature of the current situation, we will be restricting access to RT and Sputnik across the EU at this time," Clegg wrote.
RT said earlier in its Telegram channel that it has already received a notice of access restriction in the EU and Ukraine from Facebook.
