In an attempt to show support for Ukraine, Reddit has banned links to Russia’s state-controlled news outlets. The move comes after the platform quarantined the r/Russia community earlier this week.
Some subreddits had already banned links from Russia’s outlets such as Sputnik and RT. However, a platform-wide ban makes it more difficult to share content from these outlets.
Reddit has also banned ads from Russia and those whose target location is Russia. The r/Russia subreddit was also quarantined, meaning it does not appear in recommendations or searches, and its visitors are being shown a warning.
Reddit said the move was a way to show support for Ukraine. The platform says is also trying to fight misinformation about the conflict, and said it has made these decisions to fight “coordinated disinformation attempts.”

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
