The Russian telecoms policeman, Roskomnadzor, indicated on Sunday January 16 that he had sent a letter to Meta, a Californian web giant that owns Facebook, demanding "

the immediate lifting of restrictions on the official account

" of the Russian delegation in Vienna in charge of talks on arms control. The suspension of this account "

is an act of censorship

" which "

violates the essential principle of the free flow of information

", added Roskomnadzor.

The Facebook page in question was suspended on Friday for posting "

illegal content

", according to the head of the Russian delegation in Vienna, Konstantin Gavrilov.

She remained inaccessible on Monday.

Konstantin Gavrilov told the Tass news agency on Sunday that the delegation only used the page to post official statements from Russian officials.

Contacted by AFP, the Meta group, led by Mark Zuckerberg, did not respond immediately.

In February 2021, the Twitter account of the same delegation was suspended.
