The state-controlled Russian news network RT announced on Thursday that it will start broadcasting on Rumble, a YouTube-like video site, after tech companies including Meta Platforms and Twitter restricted access to RT in the wake of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Tech companies have tried to restrict state-controlled Russian media outlets like RT and Sputnik in recent days, in response to government requests and calls to stop the spread of Russia propaganda. Russia has described its actions in Ukraine as a “special operation”.
Streaming media company Roku has removed the app for RT from its Roku Channel Store in Europe, a person familiar with the matter told Reuters earlier this week.
Facebook owner Meta said on Tuesday that he was downgrading content from Facebook pages and Instagram accounts of Russian state-controlled media outlets around the world.
Rumble is a popular video site among America’s political conservatives.
