RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan said that the YouTube administration has deleted both German channels belonging to the holding, without the possibility of restoration.
It’s about the YouTube channel RT DE. He was the fourth most influential German-language media outlet according to Tubular Labs. As stated in Telegram channel Simonyan, he bypassed Deutsche Welle, as well as a number of other German giants.
She recalled that Luxembourg had previously refused to issue a broadcasting license to RT, citing the opinion of the German authorities. “This is a real copper war declared to the state state of Russia,” Simonyan is indignant.
Now she called on the “home state” to ban Deutsche Welle and other German media in Russia, as well as to close the offices of ARD and ZDF.
“I am already silent about the sanctions against YouTube itself. At least out of self-respect, we must do it,” she added.
In April, Simonyan wrote that the Facebook administration removed the page of the RT Redfish project with anti-fascist posts and historical photographs. There were posted photographs of the execution of the leader of the Italian fascists Benito Mussolini, as well as the atrocities of the Nazis in concentration camps. As a result, she promised to completely shut down Facebook.
