Facebook parent company Meta has temporarily reversed a ban on content related to a far-right Nazi militia due to its role in defending Ukraine.

The company confirmed on Thursday it is making a “narrow exception” for praise of the Azov Regiment in the context of its role as part of the Ukraine National Guard.

“We are continuing to ban all hate speech, hate symbolism, praise of violence, generic praise, support, or representation of the Azov Regiment, and any other content that violates our community standards,” a Meta spokesperson said in a statement.

The move is in part to ensure users have access to information about ongoing military activity as defense of Ukraine from Russian invasion continues.

Internal materials at Facebook, reported on by the Intercept, showed the platform will still ban recruitment to Azov on the platform and any hate speech.

That means it would allow a phrase like “Azov movement volunteers are real heroes, they are a much needed support to our national guard” but not “Well done Azov for protecting Ukraine and it’s white nationalist heritage.”
