MEDUZA/EN/VHF

It's been two days since Roskomnadzor blocked Instagram in Russia. The agency, which is in charge of telecommunications control and censorship, believes that the social network is filled with "calls to commit violent actions against Russian citizens and military personnel." Russia's Attorney General has called for Meta, Instagram's parent company, to be blacklisted as an "extremist organization." At present, the social network is still accessible through VPN, but no one knows if circumventing the block could lead to criminal charges. We asked Meduza readers about what Instagram has meant to them. Here are their answers.
