NATO-Russia: The Invasion of Lies

Everybody knows it. The first victim in a war is the truth thus is demonstrated by the waves of Fake News that flood social networks regarding the military operation that Russia is carrying out in Ukraine.


Videos and photos of victims of conflicts that occurred years ago, that took place in the darkest corners of the planet, those who today accuse Russia of being an invading force are now presented as evidence of horrors committed by the Russian army.


Some Internet giants have also joined the crime of truth, which until yesterday proclaimed themselves as great defenders of freedom of the press and speech.


Google announced this Tuesday through a statement that it has immediately blocked the RT and Sputnik channels on YouTube throughout Europe.


"Due to the ongoing war in Ukraine, we are immediately blocking YouTube channels affiliated with RT and Sputnik throughout Europe," and for this the company reports that its teams "continue to monitor the situation 24 hours a day to take quick action".


The same was done a few hours earlier by Meta company (whose subsidiaries include Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp), which in order to silence the Russian version of events also restricted the Russian media Russia Today and Sputnik in the territory of the European Union.


According to Nick Cregg, vice president of that company, who stated via Twitter: "We have received requests from several governments and the EU to take new measures in relation to the media controlled by the Russian state."


And he added: "Given the exceptional nature of the current situation, at this time, we will restrict access to RT and Sputnik throughout the EU."


The blocking of the truth in European Union countries is part of the sanctions taken by NATO-affiliated countries in relation to the special military operation Russia is carrying out in Ukrainian territory, asserted last Sunday the president of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen.


According to the statements of the senior official, the Russian information channels RT, Sputnik and their subsidiaries are part of the "media machinery of the Kremlin in the EU".


If so, one might wonder: To which government machinery do the obedient "private" companies Google and Meta belong to?
