Google News is the latest major service to be blocked in Russia. The country’s telecoms regulator Roskomnadzor has blocked Google News, according to Reuters, which cited a report from state media outlet Interfax.

The regulator said it blocked the news service because it “provided access to numerous publications and materials containing inauthentic and publicly important information about the conduct of the special military operation on the territory of Ukraine,” Interfax said.

Russia has already blocked Facebook, Instagram and Twitter in recent weeks.
