YouTube blocked Russian TV channel Tsargrad

The channel’s founder, Konstantin Malofeev, is under sanctions over allegations of financing the war in Donbas.

Google-owned YouTube video hosting blocked the account of the Russian TV channel Tsargrad on the night of July 28 without the possibility of recovery. This was reported by Google to Russia’s Interfax.

The channel’s account was blocked due to violations of the law on sanctions and trade rules. The founder of the Tsargrad TV channel is Konstantin Malofeev , who is accused of financing the war in Donbas. It has been under sanctions from the European Union, the United States and Canada since 2014.

” Google complies with all laws on sanctions and compliance with trade rules. If we find that the account violates these laws, we take appropriate action , “the company said.

The channel’s editor Daryna Tokareva announced her intention to appeal YouTube’s decision in court.

Tsargrad is a Russian news channel known for its support of militants in the Donbas and the Russian military fighting against Ukraine. The channel broadcast interviews with the leader of Russian militants Igor Girkin (Strelkov), Nazi Alexei Milchakov and others. The TV channel started broadcasting in 2015. He positions himself as “the first Russian conservative information-analytical TV channel”, from the end of 2017 he stopped broadcasting and went completely online.

In 2017, the Tsargrad TV channel launched an action to expel members of the LGBT community outside the Russian Federation .

    It took Google 3 years to block this terrorists Youtube channel. Better late than never I suppose, but seeing as this guy is under sanctions, maybe be a bit quicker banning the next Russian BS channel.

    • It’s a drop in the ocean. There are hundreds, likely thousands of hideous videos on YouTube glorifying the putinazis and demeaning their victims. Comments at the bottom are unmoderated and contain a smelly mix of conspiracy theories, Jew-hating, lies and open fascist imperialist ideology. Some have millions of views as do RaT videos. I should imagine they are using technology to boost the views artificially and google/YouTube would certainly know about it. The notorious RT video of the little rat ‘singing’ Blueberry Hill has 11m views. Hollywood scum benignly smiling in the video include Goldie Hawn, Kurt Russell, Depardieu, Costner, Sharon Stone, Jeff Bridges and some black American jazz musicians I could not identify, but I think Quincey Jones was one.
      The comments are a festival of groveling, including women claiming to have felt ‘aroused’.

    “The channel’s account was blocked due to violations of the law on sanctions and trade rules.”
    It would be far better if the scum-buckets-in-charge of the various social networks would block filth on their own account … such as for righteousness and common decency. Oh, I forgot; where money begins, righteousness and common decency come to an abrupt end.
