MOSCOW, Russia: The UK newspaper, the Telegraph, has been blocked in Russia, following a request from the Russian prosecutor-general.

The TASS news agency cited the regulator as stating, "Access to the site was restricted after it was found to have disseminated inaccurate information about the special military operation conducted by Russia's Armed Forces on the territory of Ukraine."

Since its invasion of Ukraine in February, Russia has cracked down on media coverage of the conflict, blocking the websites of foreign news outlets that it claims have spread false news.

Moscow calls its actions a "special military operation" to protect Ukraine's Russian-speaking population from persecution, which, according to Kyiv and its allies, is a baseless pretext for an invasion that has killed thousands and forced millions to flee their homes.
