From the evening of March 31 and till noon of April 5, about 650 thousand people saw the video statement by the Caucasus Emirate's Emir Dokku Umarov on the YouTube. The administration of YouTube could not bear it and removed the video.
Obviously, the YouTube decided that this is too much when the topic of Russian crimes in the Caucasus and the reasons of Moscow blasts became more popular than most spectacular presentations of Hollywood stars and video gossips about the private life of Western high society.
It should be noted that the YouTube is being increasingly engaged in scandals removing videos, which are disliked by this or that regime in different countries.
The champion here is, of course, is Russia, which reacts very sensitively to any piece of truth about its crimes. Just remember how the Kremlin fell in hysterics, demanding from the UN to remove all references to secret tortures prisoners in occupied Chechnya from a report by the UN special commission.
On the request of Moscow, the YouTube previously removed more than 300 clips from the Kavkaz Center, motivating its actions with "inappropriate content", i.e. telling the truth about Moscow crimes is inappropriate for the YouTube.
Curiously, the administration of the YouTube removed not only the clip, uploaded by the KC, but all the videos with the Emir Dokku Umarov's statement uploaded by other users.
It is to be mentioned that, taking into account the number of viewings of the statement by Dokku Umarov in other accounts of the YouTube, the total number of people who watched this video exceeded 800,000 in 4 days. This has become a kind of a record for the YouTube.
