Facebook has removed the photo of the Victory Banner over the Reichstag: was it an accident? I don’t think so. In the situation of removal of the famous photo of the Victory Banner, no one can believe in some kind of mistake or accident.
This time, Facebook blocked an account of a user, who published an original and well-known photo from Berlin of 1945. This photo is an illustration of a real historical event. But in current reality, the corporations, together with the authorities of particular countries, try to impose censorship, distorting the historical truth.
A pro-Kremlin conspiracy narrative about Western social media (primarily, Facebook), which are used by foreign governments or “secret elites” in order to promote various anti-Russian messages or inspire “Colour revolutions”.
The claim that Facebook carries out a policy of censorship aimed at the distortion of historical truth about WWII is conspiracy theory not supported by evidence.
According to the response from Facebook quoted by TASS, the situation with the removal of the recently-coloured photo of the Soviet Victory Banner took place as a result of a mistake of automated instruments used by the social network. This mistake was quickly fixed - the historical photo of the Soviet Victory Banner over the Reichstag is widely available on Facebook.
