Russia’s clampdown on independent news has been remarkably effective in creating a parallel reality/ unreality. Now the same method is being applied to stop, if possible, the trickle of real information into the newly “independent” republics in Donetsk.
Google is to be banned for promoting “terrorism and violence against all Russians”.
Denis Pushilin, head of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), posted to Telegram: THE INHUMAN PROPAGANDA OF UKRAINE AND THE WEST HAS LONG CROSSED ALL BOUNDARIES. THERE IS A REAL PERSECUTION OF RUSSIANS, THE IMPOSITION OF LIES AND DISINFORMATION.
AT THE FOREFRONT OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY IN THIS REGARD IS THE GOOGLE SEARCH ENGINE, WHICH OPENLY, ON THE ORDERS OF ITS CURATORS FROM THE US GOVERNMENT, PROMOTES TERRORISM AND VIOLENCE AGAINST ALL RUSSIANS, AND ESPECIALLY THE POPULATION OF DONBAS.
IT DIDN’T START YESTERDAY. I THINK THAT THIS SITUATION SHOULD NO LONGER BE PUT UP WITH. WE HAVE DECIDED TO BLOCK GOOGLE ON THE TERRITORY OF THE DPR. THIS IS WHAT THEY DO IN ANY SOCIETY WITH CRIMINALS: THEY ARE ISOLATED FROM OTHER PEOPLE.
IF GOOGLE STOPS PURSUING ITS CRIMINAL POLICY AND RETURNS TO THE MAINSTREAM OF LAW, MORALITY AND COMMON SENSE, THERE WILL BE NO OBSTACLES FOR ITS WORK.
The DPS is recognised only by Russia, Syria, and North Korea.
