Russian state-controlled media outlets RT and Sputnik will be banned in the European Union with immediate effect for systematic disinformation over Russia's invasion of Ukraine, the 27-country bloc said on Wednesday in an unprecedented move.www.reuters.com
The sanction means EU operators will be prohibited from broadcasting, facilitating or otherwise contributing to the dissemination of any RT and Sputnik content.
Yes, and it might also help to use free VPNs like Windscribe to change your IP Address to a country which has not banned such sites, or where they are temporarily working. I only had to use such services in China before, but I guess this kind of censorship is now becoming a new reality here in the West as well.I guess from now on, if anyone has access to any relevant and likely reliable news articles that are restricted to one country or another, we ought to copy/paste the whole thing here for the edification of all members. Continue to post the links also, even if many people (most?) can't access them.
Looks like an alternative purpose was found for all the practice put into shutting down Covid discussion and the various cancel culture rituals that go along with that. Crimethink may as well be an unwritten law in some eyes.
The cost of zinc on the LME increased by 3.6% to $3999 per ton, nickel - by 4.1% to $26935 per ton.
Quotes of May futures for wheat in Chicago on Wednesday jumped by 7.1% and reached $11.34 per bushel. Over the past month, prices have soared 1.5 times.
Russia and Ukraine together account for nearly a third of world wheat exports, 19% of corn and 80% of sunflower oil, according to Commerzbank, and most of this volume passes through Black Sea ports.
In addition, there are questions about the possibility of holding the sowing season in Ukraine this spring, experts say.
May futures prices for corn rose 2.4% to $7.425 per bushel. This is the highest level since 2012.
Indeed, the issue of food is very important. For example, in the Crimea and the Stavropol Territory of Russia, early sowing of spring crops has already begun. Now it is also critical to feed those grains that were planted in the fall of 2021 with ammonia / urea.It is very important from the point of view of agricultural produce that Russia quickly liberates the eastern and southern regions of Ukraine as that is the main bread basket. Spring is just around the corner and if peace and stability in those regions can be accomplished in the next couple of weeks, then it is still possible to have a reasonable crop, which would be able to feed the Ukrainian population. There might not be much to export, but feeding their own people will become important for the new federation of Ukrainian regions. Russia will likely help in that regard with seeds, fertilizer etc, if due to the war this will be scarce.
I use a paid VPN service and it looks like many of those sites either have been banned in most countries, or the VPN doesn't have servers in countries that allow logging into Russia. I'll look for a VPN service that has reliable servers in Russia and most likely go ahead and cancel the subscription I currently have (NordVPN) - if it's even possible as I'm outside their 30-day money back guarantee.Yes, and it might also help to use free VPNs like Windscribe to change your IP Address to a country which has not banned such sites, or where they are temporarily working.

I once stayed with a professional for a few months who sold and installed satellite dishes and expanded by going to China, even learning some Chinese and become a wholesaler. In his garden, he had several dishes, including a couple that were motor-driven, so they could shift to another area of the sky and capture different satellites.We live in France and have the Sky TV package too, and my husband also discovered that RT has been deleted from it. I can't even connect to RT or Sputnik from my computer. I can however reach the Greek site of Sputnik.
It's a European-Union-wide ban apparently, which took effect yesterday.
