Facebook blocks links to the contest in memory of Pskov paratroopers
Author: Alexander Malkevich, no comments
Another great addition to my collection about the atrocities of Western social networks in regard to Russia: Facebook has blocked a contest dedicated to the feat of the 6th platoon of Pskov paratroopers.
Yes, information about the All-Russian poetry contest "Vysota", dedicated to the twentieth anniversary of the feat of Pskov paratroopers on the world’s largest social network has been prohibited!
Andrei Beniaminov, one of the organizers of the contest and member of the Union of Russian Writers, informed reporters about this fact: "After I posted information on the contest on my page and several literary groups, Facebook literally blocked it after a couple of hours, without any reason declaring it inaccurate."
In addition, the literary and historical project "In Remembrance" of the Pskov regional branch of the Union of Russian Writers, dedicated to the 75th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War, was blocked.
"Any link to the website address of our writer’s organization Pskov Literary Portal is blocked," said Beniaminov.
However, there is more to this story.
When I tried to share information about the contest by clicking on the Facebook icon on the Pskov Literary Portal, a notification appeared: "Impossible to send message as it contains content marked by Facebook users as offensive."
I don’t even know what else (censored) to say!
