Russian state-owned media stopped from advertising or monetising on Facebook

Facebook is prohibiting Russian state media from advertising or monetising on its platform amid the invasion of Ukraine, writes standard.co.uk.

The firm’s head of security policy, Nathaniel Gleicher, said in a statement: “We are now prohibiting Russian state media from running ads or monetising 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”.

Mr Gleicher added Facebook was “closely monitoring” the situation in Ukraine and would “keep sharing steps we’re taking to protect people on our platform”.
