Russia’s communications agency Roskomnadzor announced that it will ban Instagram in the country from March 14, according to a statement on the agency’s website.
The statement, which was released on Friday, reads: “Roskomnadzor decided to complete the procedure for imposing restrictions on access to Instagram at 00:00 on March 14, providing users with an additional 48 hours of transition period.”
The announcement comes a week after Russia blocked access to Facebook. The communications agency said that decision was a result of Meta making “an unprecedented decision by allowing the posting of information containing calls for violence against Russian citizens.”
Meta did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment made outside of normal working hours.
