Facebook’s parent company Meta says that Russia will hit its services with restrictions after the social media giant refused authorities’ order to stop fact-checkers and content warning labels on its platforms.

“Ordinary Russians are using our apps to express themselves and organize for action,” Meta’s Nick Clegg says in a statement. “We want to continue to make their voices heard.”
