On Feb 12, @TwitterSupport blocked the official account of the RUS Arms Control Delegation (@armscontrol_rus). What are the reasons? An alternative position of RUS on the trends of the current pol-mil situation in Europe voiced at the @OSCE Seminar on Mil Doctrines? @mfa_russia

Earlier in February, the Russian Ministry of Defense said it decided to not participate in the military doctrine seminar of the OSCE for the first time in 30 years due to the non-constructive policies of Western states. Russia was represented by the delegation to the Vienna talks and spoke about military doctrines at the closing session.
So, Big Tech opted to censor the ability of the Russian side to provide its official position on key questions of the current international security situation to the public.
