Ex-Bolivian President accuses Europe of censoring truth on Ukraine
Former President of Bolivia Evo Morales says Europe is silencing all media outlets telling the truth about Ukraine.
Following the West's attempts to silence Russian-speaking media reporting on the Ukraine crisis, Bolivia's ex-President spoke out against the West's increasing Russophobia, accusing the west of making extreme efforts in the course of silencing all media outlets telling the truth about the situation in Ukraine.
The EU took the decision on February 27 to prohibit RT and Sputnik from broadcasting in Europe in retaliation against Russia's special military operation in Ukraine.
Morales said that he could not understand why "some European bodies that advocate for democracy and freedom of speech" are silencing media for reporting on the news in Ukraine. "The media representing imperialism are corrupt," he said, accusing them of lying and opposing the rest of the world.
"The same thing happened in Bolivia during the coup."
As part of the campaign of sanctions against Russia after its military operation in Ukraine, Google Europe blocked Youtube channels connected to RT and Sputnik across Europe.
European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen also announced the bloc's decision to ban the pair on February 27, accusing them of "spreading harmful disinformation."
