“Roskomnadzor sent a letter to the management of Google LLC demanding that all restrictions be removed from the video recording on the Deputat Slutsky channel as soon as possible,” the message says.

As noted, the material, access to which was restricted by the YouTube administration, covers the problems of the coronavirus pandemic, vaccinations and touches on the creation of barriers abroad for the Russian Sputnik V vaccine.

"The letter from Roskomnadzor notes that such actions by Google violate the key principles of free distribution of information, unhindered access to it and are an act of censorship," the department added.

Earlier, Roskomnadzor demanded that Google LLC remove all restrictions from the video recording of the broadcast of the program "60 minutes" from May 31, posted on the official channel of the TV show on YouTube
