TRIBUNNEWS.COM – YouTube is blocking worldwide access to Russian government-funded channels.

This move follows a policy of prohibiting content that denies, minimizes, or disparages well-documented incidents of violence.

According to Al Jazeera, the world’s most widely used video streaming service said Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is now under a policy of violent events and that infringing material will be removed.

YouTube spokesman Farshad Shadloo said blocking the Russian outlet was in line with the policy.
