Youtube video hosting removed the channel of the retired US Marine Corps intelligence officer Scott Ritter Show, who commented, among other things, on the situation in Ukraine and often criticized Washington’s actions.
As the military expert himself noted, he was not provided with examples of violations. In his Twitter account, he noted that by his actions, the video hosting shows signs of “the disease of Russophobia that has engulfed America and American social networks.”

Now, when trying to open Ritter’s YouTube channel, a message appears on the screen that the video is not available because the account associated with them has been deleted from the platform. A possible reason for the deletion is called “discriminatory speech”.
Scott Ritter was born into a military family in 1961 in Gainesville, Florida. He graduated from high school in Germany and later graduated with honors from Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Received a Bachelor of Arts degree in the history of the Soviet Union.
