Ukraine’s pro-Russian Donetsk and Luhansk regional officials demanded that Google be banned for spreading false information. The separatist heads of these two regions claim that there was no Russian occupation and that Ukraine attacked.
Donetsk and Luhansk Google blocked
In the news made by The Guardian, it was stated that two separatist regions of Ukraine started to blame Google. According to the statements of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) and the Luhansk People’s Republic, Google has already crossed the limits of “inhuman propaganda.”
DPR President Denis Pushilin said that Google was carrying out real disinformation against Russian soldiers and Russian citizens. Stating that the software company supports and highlights extremism and terrorism, Donetsk and Luhansk officials claimed that misinformation about the war in Ukraine was spread.
