YouTube has removed over 9,000 channels due to fake news about the war in Ukraine
For violating community guidelines, YouTube has removed more than 70,000 videos and 9,000 channels that refer to the war as a "liberation mission" of Russia in Ukraine.
According to Neal Mohan, YouTube's Chief Product Officer, the company has a major violent events policy and that applies to things like denial of major violent events. In particular, this applies to Holocaust denial.
“Of course, what’s happening in Ukraine is a major violent event. And so we’ve used that policy to take unprecedented action,” Neal Mohan said.
He noted that most of the deleted videos and channels spread Kremlin narratives about the war. The company's representative added that in Ukraine alone, the content of news about the Russian invasion received more than 40 million views on YouTube.
“The consumption of authoritative channels on our platform has grown significantly, of course in Ukraine, but also in countries surrounding Ukraine, Poland, and also within Russia itself,” the Chief Product Officer stressed.
The platform has also imposed a global ban on Russian state-run media channels, including Russia Today and Sputnik.

Ukraine’s IT army attacked more than 400 Russian online resources during the week
From May 16 to 22, Ukraine’s IT army attacked more than 400 online resources of the Russian Federation, including the NashStore app store, an equivalent to the App Store, and Google Play. The Ministry of Digital Transformation announced it on Telegram.
"The IT army continues to defend the cyber front and strikes the enemy. More than 400 Russian online resources were attacked from May 16 to 22,” the statement said.
Many regional media sites were inaccessible due to cyber attacks by the IT army.
NashStore, the Russian equivalent for the App Store and Google Play, had difficulties during the announced launch. Import substitution did not work out.
The Russians also had difficulties selling and renting real estate online.
Russian banks still can not recover from previous attacks by the IT army and cope with new ones on their sites and online banking systems.
Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the IT army has attacked about 2,000 Russian resources. Many of them were re-attacked.
Latvia has terminated the agreement on cultural cooperation with Russia
The government of Latvia has decided to suspend any cultural cooperation with Russia until all troops are withdrawn from Ukraine and the country's territorial integrity is fully restored. This was stated by Nauris Puntulis, the Minister of Culture in the Republic of Latvia.
The agreement, signed by the two countries back in 2002, will be terminated early and as a matter of urgency. If Russia objects, the agreement will be terminated in a manner that does not require the consent of the other party.
According to the Minister, he is delighted that this issue has finally been resolved politically. Puntulis stressed that it is absolutely impossible to cooperate in the cultural sector with a country that has started a bloody war in which peaceful Ukrainians are killed, and cultural monuments and infrastructure are destroyed by bombs.
Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkēvičs has sent the Russian Embassy in Riga a note to inform about Latvia's decision to suspend a bilateral agreement on the maintenance of memorial structures in the two countries. He notified about it on his Twitter.

We do not arrange celebrations, but we are inspired together with you - all those with whom we have been together for these 16 years, to gather and make our joint contribution to the victory of Ukraine " Artur Mikhno, co-founder and CEO of Work.ua. wrote.

This year, the important task of the Ukrainian National Pavilion in Cannes, in addition to promoting and exporting Ukrainian cinema, is to call on the world to support the creative industries, the culture of Ukraine, and the Ukrainian film industry, which is suffering significant losses due to the war.
To support the Ukrainian film industry, the Ukrainian state film agency and the Ukrainian Pavilion at Marche du Film 2022 are organizing a charity auction with unique cinematographic and artistic lots, with the assistance of the City of Cannes.
Among the works presented at the auction will be:
original storyboard to the film "Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors" by Serhii Paradzhanov;
posters to the most outstanding Ukrainian films of the XX century;
a painting “Cats” by Vladyslav Shereshevskyi, painted on March 19, 2022, after the shelling and destruction of residential buildings in Mariupol by Russian troops. Children then ran out of homes, holding only pets.
The paintings by Ivan Marchuk "Dreams come from the shores" and "Dreamy haycocks" are another significant lot that should be presented by the famous author himself.
The guests of the charity evening will be shown video presentations about Ukrainian cinematographers who are now forced to defend Ukraine with weapons instead of working on films. The event will be supported by the famous Ukrainian band KAZKA & Kadebostany.
Each guest will be able to contribute to the preservation of the freedom and independence of the Ukrainian state. All funds raised will be used to support Ukraine.
