Last week, we stopped all exports into our sales channels in the country. Apple Pay and other services are limited. RT News and Sputnik News are no longer available for download from the App Store outside of Russia.


At the same time, RT Today is disabled on YouTube in EU countries and Norway. Microsoft has also banned state-sponsored content on Bind and related advertising platforms. Google has done the same on its services.

"I have contacted Tim Cook to block the App Store for the citizens of Russia, and to support the package of US sanctions!", Tweets Fedorov, adding that the Russian people can accept Russia 24 if they agree with a “president-killer”.

While Ukraine's authorities hope to limit the ability of Russians to find out what's going on, Russia itself has restricted access to Facebook for its own people due to what they refer to as censorship of their own media.


Metas' Nick Clegg stated on Twitter that "yesterday the Russian authorities ordered us to stop the independent fact-checking and labeling of content posted on Facebook by four media organizations owned by the Russian state. We refused, and as a result, they have announced that they will limit the use of our services ".
