YouTube Blocks Channels Owned By Russian Media Outlets


YouTube has blocked channels linked to Russian state-owned media outlets RT and Sputnik across Europe – including the UK – amid the invasion of Ukraine.

In a statement posted to Twitter, said:

Due to the ongoing war in Ukraine, we’re blocking YouTube channels connected to RT and Sputnik across Europe, effective immediately.

It’ll take time for our systems to fully ramp up. Our teams continue to monitor the situation around the clock to take swift action.

The platform had previously limited the ability of RT and other Russian channels to make money from advertising on the site.
