The Association of Families of Azovstal Defenders filed an appeal against blocking the page on Instagram and appealed to the Ministry of Digital Transformation regarding the situation.

This was announced by Minister Mikhail Fedorov in his own telegram channel.

According to the official, the ministry’s team sent a letter to Meta, the owner of Instagram, asking them to unblock the Association’s page, the page of the head of the Azovstal Defenders’ Families Association, and 5 other pages related to the activities of the Azov Regiment. Now they are all blocked.
“The pages of Ukrainian defenders should not be blocked,” said Mikhail Fedorov. - We are waiting for the prompt reaction of the "Target" team. We hope that the company will soon be able to comprehensively change approaches to content moderation and solve the problem of mass blocking of Ukrainian users. The world must know the truth about the war in Ukraine," Fedorov wrote.
On August 9, it became known that Instagram stopped accessing the page of the Association of Families of Defenders of Azovstal, where relatives of the military who defended Mariupol from the Russians reported everything that happens to them after they were captured in May 2022. .

The Association of Families of Azovstal Defenders was created on June 1 to provide representative, advisory, humanitarian, advisory, supervisory, organizational, informational and other support to the process of releasing the defenders of Mariupol.
