    I thought your country was neutral in this?
    I heard some folks on the Indian forums complaining about RT being blocked so Youtube must be doing this unilaterally.
    YouTube said they would block sources associated with the Russian government globally.

    YouTube started glitching RT's videos in India. All of RT's videos were glitched with video filters on purpose.

    Today RT has been blocked both in India and in the US. Not just the EU as a couple days ago.

    You guys need to specify cause RT is also on cable TV. So you are saying JUST youtube, right?

    DirecTv took down RT at the start of the conflict. Youtube silenced them in the land of the free (because the First Amendment is under full attack here in the United States), but at least the website still works. . . . For now. Same with Sputnik. Its all good, I have VPN ready to go when they decide ban it here, and obscenely, absurdly, and tragically that day is probably fast approaching.

    Just YouTube. Though with the decisions various companies are making, I would assume RT will have a hard time broadcasting on cable at some point in the future.

    Some Protestant and Catholic churches are however protesting against Russia and are holding prayer meetings to support Ukraine.




    I find it very strange Roman Catholics would support them since in 1944 the Ukrainian nationalists murdered an entire orphanage in the region of Zamojszczyzna (at least around 30 ethnic Polish kids murdered, and also a couple of nuns) which was run by the Polish Roman Catholic Church.


    http://asaland.proboards.com/thread/460/land-zamosc-zamojszczyzna-1942-1944




    There are also numerous instances of the Ukrainian nationalists, both the Byzantine Rite Catholics and those who were Eastern Orthodox, murdering of ethnic Polish Roman Catholic clergy.


    http://michalw.narod.ru/index-Truth.html



    I guess they never told you about it?


    It is surprising that the Vatican supports Ukraine, despite the fact only a minority of Ukrainians are Catholics.

    And also, the ultra-Roman Catholic Croatia furnishing them with 60 volunteers, during the time before the special operation (possibly more by now).

    Amazing.

    RT was blocked on YouTube yes. At first just in the EU but now I think the block is global.

    The RT and Sputnik apps were also blocked in the Google Android app store in the EU.
    I would not be surprised if the Android app store block right now was also global.
    Apple had already blocked the RT and Sputnik apps from their app store globally.

    RT also switched the satellite it uses for its satellite broadcast service.

    Depending on the country I guess.

    Would be interesting if they can start their own channel provider in various countries.

    They forget that ukraine has the same vehicles as Russia including t-72 and t-80. Once they find any vehicle they say it's russian.

    Reality is that many ukrainian vehicles were abondoned and destroyed by attack helicopters.

    So we can safely say those numbers are biased.

    So The Times newspaper upsets the Ukrainian fake-throwers, who talk about the fact that the Russian army has almost been destroyed. According to the newspaper's military experts, no more than 5% of the equipment involved has been lost.

    Doubt it. The intensity of warfare has subsided since the first week, and now battles are focused on various key towns and road hubs

    They were talking about hundreds of Russian tanks destroyed a week ago

    Now they're trying to switch to more 'believable' figures

    But it's all nonsense. How you can possibly count loses based on photos, for an advancing army I don't know.

    "Documented" includes T-64s which Russia does not operate. The LDNR forces do but it is not clear what is being counted.

    Ukrs have been shown to paint "Z" and "V" on their own equipment.

    what does "documented losses" mean? Is this person being sent data from the Russian General Staff? The numbers look completely made up.
