“We don’t remove accounts even when we disagree with the content they post — but we do take action when they violate our rules,” said Drew Pusateri, a spokesperson for Meta, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram. “The world deserves the opportunity to hear and scrutinize the content of Russian leaders at this moment.”

In a statement, Twitter spokesperson Katie Rosborough said, “While we’ve had a policy around state-affiliated media and government accounts for years, the war in Ukraine raises a complicated set of challenges in how we handle the accounts — our goal is to consistently enforce our rules while balancing the public interest.”
