RT's Instagram accounts were blocked in 27 European countries.
In the shadowy part of the Internet, the so-called Darknet, ads with "orders" for terrorist attacks against Russia were revealed, the Russian Interior Ministry said.
"In the course of monitoring the Internet, employees of the Russian Interior Ministry revealed a number of ads calling for terrorist activities in the shadow segment of the network, on the Hydra site, as well as in social networks and instant messengers," the Ministry said.
The posted materials revealed offers by attackers to carry out terrorist attacks in exchange for money, including against the state authorities of Russia, and other crimes, it said.
"According to available information, announcements of calls for illegal acts are distributed by call centers located in Ukraine. The police suggest that previously these centers could engage in phone fraud against Russian citizens and other criminal acts," the interior Ministry added.
In the meantime, the Ministry "urges citizens not to respond to provocative proposals distributed on the Internet."
Participation in terrorist activities, hooliganism, and other illegal acts entail criminal liability, the police recalled.
