The submission of the Prosecutor General’s Office to Roskomnadzor about the blocking of Instagram (the social network is owned by Meta) does not affect the WhatsApp messenger, said Alexander Khinshtein, head of the State Duma Committee on Information Policy, Information Technologies and Communications.

Earlier, the Prosecutor General’s Office of Russia announced that it had sent an application to the court to recognize Meta Platforms Inc. as an extremist organization and ban its activities on the territory of the Russian Federation.

The Supervisory Authority justified its position in connection with the dissemination of information materials containing calls to commit violent acts against Russians, including military personnel.
