Official: WhatsApp will not be blocked in Russia

Today, the Tverskoy Court of Moscow ruled to recognize Meta as an extremist organization. This company owns Instagram, Facebook and WhatsApp. Legal clarifications on the situation are now coming.
This has already been discussed before, and now the media have circulated the official court decision: “The blocking of Facebook and Instagram will begin immediately, WhatsApp blocking does not apply.” That is, messenger users have nothing to worry about.

As for Facebook and Instagram users, they will not be persecuted for being on social networks. However, the lawyers explained that the purchase of advertising on Instagram and Facebook can be regarded in Russia as financing extremism. In addition, criminal or administrative liability may arise for posting posts on social networks that violate the current Russian legislation.
