In Myanmar, where a military coup took place in early February, the Internet encyclopedia Wikipedia was blocked, the non-profit organization NetBlocks reported on Twitter.
The country does not have versions of the online encyclopedia in all languages. Before that, Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp were blocked. In addition, for the sixth consecutive night in Myanmar, the Internet has been intermittent. On February 14, it was almost completely disabled.
In early February, the Myanmar military seized power in the country and declared a state of emergency. Power passed to the commander of the armed forces, Min Aung Hline.
President Vin Mying and State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, were taken into custody. The military accused the former leadership of falsifying the parliamentary elections in November last year, which were won by the then ruling National League for Democracy party. After the coup, massive protests began in Myanmar.
