Ecuador has cut off the internet connection to Julian Assange at its London Embassy after the WikiLeaks founder criticized the United Kingdom and its allies for expelling Russian diplomats following the poisoning of a former Russian spy.
Assange has since gone silent on social media.
The Australian computer programmer has been living in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since 2012 in an effort to avoid extraditing to Sweden.
Mr Assange had signed a written agreement not to send any messages that might undermine Ecuador's relationships with other countries, it said.
Ecuador said Wednesday it has suspended outside communications for Julian Assange at its London embassy after he published message critical of the British government.
Assange had close ties to former Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa, but has seen the relationship cool under his successor, Lenín Moreno, who came to power a year ago.

In 2016, Ecuador briefly suspended his internet connection for posting documents online that were seen as having an impact on the USA presidential election from which Donald Trump emerged the victor.
Former President Rafael Correa hailed Assange's work but his successor Moreno, who took office in May 2017, has called him a hacker and warned him not to meddle in politics.
Mr Assange, 46, has spent much of his time in his small room in the embassy tweeting and at times contributing to RT, a Russian state-owned television channel that broadcasts Kremlin messaging, as well as taking part in media conferences via video link.
But the comment that might have been the straw that broke the camel's back is his response to U.K.'s Europe and the Americas Minister Alan Duncan, who called Assange a "miserable little worm" that should walk out of the embassy and give himself up to British justice.
Swedish prosecutors has been investigating Assange because of rape allegations by two women, and British authorities issued a warrant for his arrest for what they said was jumping bail.
