Here we look at how Russia promotes terrorism on YouTube. Since 2014 when Russian undeclared hybrid intervention have started, Google’s obvious lack of knowledge about the war in Ukraine allows Russian-backed mercenary units to promote terrorism on YouTube. We highlight a blatant mercenary recruitment video, one which stokes hatred by its use of terms like Nazi’s, tells people how to break international law and even gives advice on how to scam crowdfunding companies.
The recruitment video is no better than one from Islamic State, yet YouTube has ignored repeated complaints about its content. Thus far, over 10,000 Ukrainian men, women and children have been killed because of Russia’s occupying army and its drug smuggling mercenaries, like Russell Bentley.
