The management of "YouTube" announced that it has suspended several Russian channels from advertising revenue due to the events in Ukraine.

"In light of the events in Ukraine, we have decided to suspend monetization of a number of YouTube channels, including several Russian channels that were recently sanctioned," the company said in its statement.

"YouTube has restricted access to our channel's live broadcast, which is transmitted from a camera in Maidan Square in Ukraine ... This video is not available on Ukrainian soil now," the editor-in-chief of the Russian newspaper, RBC, said.

Russia's media outlet RT and other channels were banned from monetization on YouTube, a similar move made by Facebook after the operation in Ukraine.
