Russia bans Google News for ‘unreliable’ info on Ukraine

Russia’s telecoms watchdog Roskomnadzor blocked access to Google News services, stating: ‘The mentioned U.S. Internet news resource provided access to numerous publications and materials containing unreliable, publicly significant information about the course of the special military operation in Ukraine.’ The decision was taken at the request of the Russian General Prosecutor’s Office.
Google confirmed ‘that some people are having difficulty accessing the Google News app and website in Russia and that this is not due to any technical issues on our end.’
