As a result, tens of thousands of agency videos and projects have been deleted.
This was reported on the website of RIA FAN (Federal News Agency).
It is noted that Google has explained its actions as a “violation of the rules” by Russian media, without specifying specific reasons.
The FAN claims that they allegedly did not violate anything, and the actions of the IT company are considered as a manifestation of censorship of the media and the “declaration of information war”.
The agency also believes that without their presence on YouTube, it will become “a playground for Russophobes and extremists.” Therefore, they require either to unlock the channel or to ban this video service in Russia.
RIA FAN is linked to Russian businessman Yevgeny Prigogin, who also finances the Internet Research Agency (Troll Factory).
Previously, FAN appealed to Facebook for deleting a social media page
