Russia vs Meta: stop to extremist activities

The umpteenth threat to Russia was unleashed by the change in Meta’s policies, which is allowing for a limited period, posts that incite violence towards the country, regarding its invasion of Ukraine. “What Meta is doing is called ‘inciting to’racial hatred which in Russian legislation qualifies as extremism “, explained the deputy head of the Russian committee on technologies and communications, Anton Gorelkin.

For its part, Facebook stated the following: “We will temporarily allow certain forms of expression politics that would otherwise violate our policies ”, specifying that among these posts there are also those that praise the death of the invaders. It is therefore a rather controversial decision, despite the gravity of the situation which shows no signs of improving in Ukraine.
