Russia’s communications agency Roskomnadzor announced that it will ban Instagram in the country from March 14

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.”
