Russia Tries to ban YouTube over extremist content


A Russian court in the Far Eastern Federal District has ordered all local internet service providers to block access to Youtube and four other websites which it believes harbour and promote “extremist” views.

The Komsomolsky-on-Amur court wanted the sites banned because Hitler’s writings, such as Mein Kampf, were available to read, while others had a video uploaded entitled “Russia for Russians”, which is a slogan used by far right groups in the country
