YouTube blocks channels linked to Russia’s RT and Sputnik across Europe



YouTube on Tuesday, blocked channels connected to Russian state-backed media outlets RT and Sputnik across Europe, due to the situation in Ukraine.

The company operated by Alphabet Inc’s (GOOGL.O) Google in a statement said: “it will take time for our systems to fully ramp up.

“Our teams continue to monitor the situation around the clock to take swift action.’’

The company’s actions followed that of Facebook parent Meta Platforms Inc(FB.O), which on Monday said it would restrict access to television network RT and news agency Sputnik on its platforms across the European Union.

Twitter Inc (TWTR.N) had also said that it would label tweets containing contents from the Russian state-controlled media and reduce their visibility.
