Twitter supports occupation refusing to remove 'verified' account of Russian MFA in Crimea 1

Ukraine is demanding from Twitter to remove a “verified” sign from the account of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s office in occupied Crimea, accusing the social-media giant of promoting Kremlin propaganda.

Ukraine’s ambassador to the United States, Volodymyr Yelchenko, sent a letter to Twitter asking the company to deactivate the Russian account. The account of “Russian occupation authorities in Crimea cannot be described as official and legitimate,” the diplomatic mission said on Facebook.

Back in 2019, the Embassy of Ukraine in the UK appealed to the administration of the social network with a request to block this account, but it appears that technological giants don’t really need to respect international law.
