An address from Roskomnadzor states "Earlier it became known that YouTube video hosting users are broadcasting commercials with calls to disable the railway communications of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus. The actions of the YouTube administration are of a terrorist nature and threaten the life and health of Russian citizens."

This video on youtube also apparently shows a screenshot of something on the same lines at 10:49. However, I have tried looking for this video and have not been able to find it. Could someone verify that it exists?

  • Well, I'm sure that if those adds existed they were taken down quickly, as they might have violated YouTube TOS too, depending on what exactly was said in them. Commented Mar 26, 2022 at 7:28
  • I mean, there must still be a video(not as an ad) of them somewhere, though, right? Commented Mar 26, 2022 at 12:06

    Yes, I agree, was just saying that if the Roskomnadzor claim as to the contents is correct, then I don't expect those to be easy to find. And not my DV, by the way, I upvoted. Commented Mar 26, 2022 at 12:29
  • I'm sure at least one YouTube user is saying that. Commented Apr 1, 2022 at 16:37

    @Fizz You are far too confident of YouTube’s moderation abilities. It is very likely that an ad like this would be allowed on YouTube, and for a significant time.
