During the meeting in Davos, the Ministry of Digital Transformation team asked Meta to revise its content moderation policy so that the company does not block or delete Ukrainian users’ posts about the war.
The Ministry of Digital Transformation reports this in its Telegram channel.
“Mykhailo Fedorov discussed this with Meta’s President of Global Affairs Nick Clegg and Vice President of Content Policy Monika Bickert during a meeting in Davos.”
Meta recently developed and adopted an adapted content moderation policy for war coverage. Gradually, this solution begins to work.
Also, Meta will not block Azov pages and content about the Azov regiment, if it does not violate Meta community standards.
“Facebook and Instagram have become powerful tools for bringing the truth about war to the whole world. The team of the Ministry of Digital Transformation constantly communicates with the Meta corporation regarding cooperation. Hundreds of accounts of Ukrainian military personnel, bloggers and activists have been unblocked,” reported Minister of Digital Transformation Mykhailo Fedorov. “But the most pressing topic still remained the blocking of photos and videos about the Azov regiment. Thank you Meta for the considered and important decision to change the moderation policy regarding Ukraine. Thanks to this, millions of people in the world will know about the deed of the defenders of Mariupol, and Russian propaganda will lose its argument for accusing Ukrainian heroes.”
