Facebook has partially backtracked on its previous announcement that calling for violence against Russians was acceptable on the platform, stating now that while its fine to call for the death of Russians, calling for the death of world leaders like Vladimir Putin is against the rules.

Reuters reports that Facebook (now known as Meta) has stated that it is altering its content moderation policy for Ukraine once again, this time making calls for the death of heads of state including Vladimir Putin and President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko a violation of its rules. The decision is a partial pivot on last week’s announcement that the company would be allowing users to call for violence against Russians.

Breitbart News reported last week that an email from Facebook stated that calls for violence against both Russian soldiers and Russians were permissible on the platform, as long as the context of the invasion of Ukraine was made clear:
