MOSCOW. March 11 (Interfax) - Owners of Facebook accounts will not be considered extremists, if a Russian court deems its parent company Meta Platforms, Inc., and extremist organization, Federation Council Constitutional Legislation and State-Building Committee head Andrei Klishas said.

"No," he told Interfax on Friday, answering a relevant question.

The Russian Prosecutor General's Office has lodged a lawsuit on Friday seeking to deem Meta Platforms, Inc., an extremist organization and ban its operations in Russia.
