Facebook has apparently suspended the account of a popular Russian-state media outlet without explanation.
RT tweeted on Monday that Facebook shut down the RT page in Russian 'without any explanation.
'The page has more than 2 million followers, making it one of the largest Russian-language media pages on Facebook.
'We expect a response from the customer service team,' the outlet said.
The RT page in English, however, still seems to be working.
Some on the RT page are now accusing Facebook of playing politics. DailyMail.com has reached out to Meta for comment.
