YouTube, Facebook and Twitter have announced blocking ads run by state-backed Russian media outlets on their platforms following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, as the West prepared for a new set of sanctions against Moscow.
The head of security policy at Meta, formerly Facebook, Nathaniel Gleicher said the social network was "prohibiting Russian state media from running ads or monetizing on our platform anywhere in the world."
1/ We are now prohibiting Russian state media from running ads or monetizing on our platform anywhere in the world. We also continue to apply labels to additional Russian state media. These changes have already begun rolling out and will continue into the weekend.
