MOSCOW (Reuters) - Several previously blocked social media apps including Instagram and Facebook suddenly became available in Russia on Tuesday, according to Reuters reporters.

Some Reuters reporters in Moscow were able to browse Instagram without requiring a virtual private network (VPN) for the first time in almost two years, after they were blocked in March 2022.
