Friday, Russia blocked access to Facebook after the platform placed restrictions on state-owned media.

Later, the Russian state communications regulator, Roskomnadzor, said it had also restricted access to Twitter.

Facebook and Instagram have removed Russia Today (RT) and Sputnik from their output in the European Union earlier this week and did the same with the UK on Friday. This was followed by an immediate response from the Russian communications regulator.
