Following this, Roskomnadzor banned Instagram for the country's 80 million users, causing widespread turmoil within Russia's influencer sector. Meta, the company that owns Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instagram, has been designated as an extremist group by the Russian Prosecutor General's Office, according to a court filing.

But, BBC News has been blocked since March 4. For some people who try to use the BBC, they get an error message and can't get in.

When it comes to Russian influencers, Instagram is quite popular, with many of them having millions of followers. As a result of their country's decision to prohibit Instagram from starting on Monday, some Russian influencers have broken down in tears. Olga Buzova, a reality television star with 23.3 million Instagram followers, recorded an almost seven-minute video on Sunday in which she sobbed when she realized she would lose her audience.

"I am not afraid of admitting that I do not want to lose you, I do not know what the future holds. I don't know. I just shared my life, my work, and my soul. I did not do this all as a job for me, this is a part of my soul. It feels like a big part of my heart, and my life is being taken away from me," Buzova was very sad when she said that.

The opposition news channel Nexta TV reported that another unidentified Russian content creator had shed tears over the weekend, claiming that this is the "first stage of grief" as a result of the ban. The anonymous Russian asked in a video uploaded by the YouTube channel, "Do you think that for me, as an Instagram influencer, this is a source of income? To me, it's all life. It's the soul. It's the one thing with which I wake up, fall asleep."

Access to this page is prohibited, because it was included in the "Unified Register of Prohibited Sites", containing information, the dissemination of which is prohibited in the Russian Federation, or in the "Federal List of Extremist Materials" on the website of the Ministry of Justice."

Yes, virtual private networks (VPNs) are permitted in Russia. The use of virtual private networks (VPNs) and internet anonymizers is not prohibited in Russia, but the country does block the URLs of VPN providers who enable access to restricted content or websites on the country's "reject list."

The primary function of a virtual private network (VPN) is to conceal your internet activity. A virtual private network (VPN) is frequently used to protect against hackers and snoopers on public networks, but they may also be used to hide your IP address, browsing activities, and personal data on any Wi-Fi network, including those at home.

For the first time since 2012, the Russian government has maintained a centralized internet blacklist known as the "single register," which is kept by the Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology, and Mass Media (Roskomnadzor). Individual URLs, domain names, and IP addresses are blocked using this list, which is updated on a regular basis.

Conclusion

One of the people's founding principles is that they should be able to speak freely and get information. Keeping people's freedom has meant protecting not just what people write in books, newspapers, radio, and TV, but also what people write and read on the internet. All you need to do is use whatever communication platform is available and be flexible in these critical times.
