The Government of Ecuador suspended the systems allowing Julian Assange to communicate with the outside from the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where the citizen remains in a situation of global protection for six years due to risks to his life and integrity.
That stipulation is part of Assange's asylum agreement with Ecuador, which has housed him in its London embassy since 2012 as he sought to avoid extradition to Sweden for an investigation into rape allegations.
The decision from the Ecuadorean government came after Mr Assange on Monday used Twitter to challenge Britain's accusation that Russia was responsible for the March 4 nerve agent poisoning of a Russian former double agent in the English city of Salisbury.
The Swedish investigation was dropped in May past year, but Assange, who was on bail at the time when he walked into the embassy, faces arrest by the British authorities for breaching his bail terms should he step outside.
However, in recent days Assange has tweeted about his disapproval with several countries, including the US, for their decision to expel Russian diplomats in response to the poisoning of a Russian ex-spy in the United Kingdom earlier this month.
The comments prompted a British Foreign Office minister, Alan Duncan, to brand Mr Assange a "miserable little worm" who should leave the embassy to turn himself over to British authorities.

It's been a weird five years for Julian Assange.
Assange's internet access was also interrupted in 2016 after a WikiLeaks dump targeting Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.
In May 2017, Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno asked him to refrain from commenting on a separatist crisis in Spain over that country's Catalonia region, after he tweeted that Madrid was guilty of "repression", AFP reported.
Assange argued that Sweden would eventually extradite him to the United States to face prosecution over WikiLeaks' publication of leaked classified military and diplomatic documents. He's been living in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for so long that he's been granted citizenship, but not diplomat status.
