The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, said that if the official channel of the department on YouTube is blocked, one of the journalists from the CNN and BBC television companies will “go home.”
Earlier, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs channel on YouTube received a second warning “for violating community rules”, while the objections to the first block were rejected.
That is, one more “strike” – and the channel of the Russian Foreign Ministry on YouTube will be disabled. Wangyu. The Foreign Ministry’s channel on YouTube will be turned off – someone from CNN will go home. And the Air Force too.
Maria Zakharova said that Youtube continues its campaign against freedom of speech and any alternative Western points of view. There are 36 accounts under YouTube restrictions, including RT, Russia 24, Sputnik, Zvezda, RBC, NTV and others. Roskomnadzor called YouTube one of the key platforms for the dissemination of “false content” about Russia’s special operation in Ukraine.
Recently, many have threatened to block YouTube. A couple of weeks ago, the head of the Human Rights Council under the President of Russia, Valery Fadeev, said that YouTube should be blocked in Russia for disseminating false information, but in this case, Russia would not be able to use this site to publish the truth.
