Thus, Assange had no means to communicate with the outside world. According to the memorandum, he was punished because of the non-fulfillment of a written commitment, which he gave in late 2017.
In that document, he promised not to disseminate messages that “would suggest interference in international relations.” In particular, Assange’s behavior can damage relations with Britain and the European Union, the Ecuadorian government emphasized.
The publication of Metro Ecuador, one of the first to report the punishment of Assange, referred to his tweet on March 26 on the case of poisoning former Colonel GRU Sergey Skripal and his daughter. The founder of WikiLeaks wrote that the British authorities have not yet proved the involvement of the Kremlin in the incident.

Assange is in the embassy of Ecuador in London since 2012. He is afraid of extradition to the United States in the case of disclosure of classified data. If the founder of WikiLeaks leaves the territory of the diplomatic mission, the British police will be able to detain him under the current warrant.
