Yevgeny Prigozhin, Russian businessman and C.E.O of Wagner Group, accused Youtube of spreading false information against Russia.

Report gotten from Reuters, revealed that Yevgeny Prigozhin, the Russian businessman and founder of the Wagner Group who is also known as Putin’s chef, has submitted a formal request to the Prosecutor General to conduct an audit of YouTube’s activities and to consider declaring the American company Google LLC undesirable in the Russian Federation

Prigozhin claims that since Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, a full-scale information war has been launched against the Russian Federation, involving the extensive use of disinformation and negative attitudes inculcated via YouTube. 

In his request, Prigozhin alleges that YouTube is spreading fake news, publishes Russophobic content, is calling for the overthrow of the government in Russia, etc.

According to Putin’s chef, there are perfectly good equivalents of YouTube in Russia, such as VK, Rutube, Odnoklassniki and Zen.
