YouTube’s new moderation rules have once again proven that video hosting is 100% neutral, has become a space of Russophobia and has become a tool in the information war. The site will continue to suppress the Russian point of view on what is happening and no soft measures such as fines will affect the site. This was stated in a conversation with URA.RU by Nikita Danyuk, a member of the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation and the first deputy director of the PFUR Institute for Strategic Studies and Forecasts.

Earlier, YouTube sent a new guide to its moderators. According to her, all videos that talk about the genocide in Donbass, US biolabs in Ukraine, as well as promote the thesis that Ukraine is undergoing a special operation to denazify and demilitarize the territory, will be removed from monetization. This content is now considered malicious and hateful.

“The new rules of moderation are another proof that YouTube, as a video hosting company, has lost 100% of its neutrality and has become a tool in the information war to suppress the Russian point of view on what is happening in Ukraine and around the world. We can already say that YouTube is a space of Russophobia and further they will be even bigger, even tighter to tighten the nuts on any content where there is an alternative point of view, “said Nikita Danyuk.

According to him, YouTube has started banning talking about facts. “If before the state media was constantly attacked, censored, restrictions were placed on videos that told the Russian version of what was happening, now the list of such materials includes all the videos about the presence of Nazis in Ukraine. YouTube is maximally politically engaged and acts exclusively in the interests of the American government, “the agency’s interlocutor said.

Danyuk stressed that Russia needs to introduce tougher measures regarding video hosting. “We need to take a tough stance, because this is the path of war and no soft measures like fines on YouTube will work. Practice shows that even when Google paid the fines, illegal content was not removed. Therefore, destructive, Russophobic content in this case will continue to spread on the platform, “- summed up Danyuk.
