No, on Facebook and Instagram no one can wish Putin death


Facebook and Instagram users will not be able to wish the death or murder of Russian President Vladimir Putin, even during the war in Ukraine. With a partial backtracking Meta, the parent company of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, has announced that it will ban posts against the Kremlin leader after saying last week that it would exceptionally allow verbal violence against soldiers and the Russian people to users of Ukraine, Russia, Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Slovakia, Hungary and Romania in the context of the ongoing conflict. Even the Russian leaders could become the object of insults and threats but on condition that the latter were credible and detailed. Instead, prisoners of war were excluded from the permitted targets. Now things have changed .

"In order to remove any ambiguity about our position, we are further narrowing our guideline to make it explicit that we do not allow death wishes to a head of state on our platforms," ​​wrote Nick Clegg, who leads Meta's global affairs, in an internal memo obtained by Bloomberg and later confirmed by the company itself. Protest posts against the Russian armed forces will be tolerated, but this concession "should not be interpreted as a condemnation of violence against the Russians in general, "added Clegg.

Meta's head of global affairs had already tweeted on March 11 to spell out the news on the company's new policies regarding hate speech against the Russians. "If we applied our standard content policies without any adjustments, we would now remove the content of Ukrainian citizens expressing their resistance and anger against the invading military forces," he wrote.

Twitter content This content can also be viewed on the site it originates from.

Clegg further explained that the company's temporary loosening of the hate speech policy applies only to posts originating from Ukraine and not also from Russia and the Baltic countries as had previously emerged.

Meta made it clear that "there is no change in our hate speech policies regarding the Russian people. We will not tolerate russophobia or any kind of discrimination, harassment or violence against the Russian people. on our platform ".

These clarifications come after Russia opened an investigation into Meta due to the change in its policy and after the country blocked users from also using Instagram. Moscow had already blocked accessing Facebook within its borders as a response to the company's actions to crack down on disinformation about the war in Ukraine spread by Russian state media such as RT and Sputnik.
