Meta platforms will allow Facebook and Instagram users in some countries to call for violence against Russians and Russian soldiers in the context of the invasion of Ukraine, according to Reuters.
This is a temporary change in the policy of expressing hostility.
According to a series of internal emails to content moderators in Europe, the social network temporarily allows the publication of some posts in Russia, Ukraine and Poland calling for the deaths of Russian President Vladimir Putin and Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko.
Last week, Russia announced that it was banning Facebook in the country in response to restrictions on access to Russian media on the platform.
Internal emails also show that the Ukrainian Azov Battalion will be allowed to praise, which is usually prohibited.
Meta spokesman Joe Osborne said earlier that the company made a small exception to praising Azov in the context of its participation in the defense of Ukraine and its role in the National Guard of Ukraine.
