YouTube Blocked Live Video Broadcasts of the Funeral of Aleksandr Zakharchenko in Donetsk

Translated by Ollie Richardson & Angelina Siard


YouTube blocked the video broadcast of the funeral of Aleksandr Zakharchenko in Donetsk. The video broadcasts of the “News Front” news Agency, the Russian TV channel “Tsargrad”, and the Donetsk TV channel “Oplot TV” fell under the block. Why the material was blocked isn’t known.

Users, in particular of our channel, complained that the video is inaccessible.

As was explained, allegedly it “is done upon the demand of Universal Music Group (UMG)”.

We will explain: in most cases YouTube blocks videos for the illegal use of content. For the purpose of protecting copyright, the video hosting company implements the blocking of audio, video, and images that are used without the permission of the owner. The reasons for the video from Donetsk being blocked were known on September 2nd only by the owners of the video hosting.
