YouTube has removed the channel of blogger Dmitry Puchkov (Goblin). According to the screenshot posted by Puchkov, the hosting explained the decision as a violation of community rules.
“An enemy resource, what to expect from it,” the blogger told the Zvezda TV channel of the Ministry of Defense. Deputy Chairman of the Security Council Dmitry Medvedev wrote under Puchkov's post on VKontakte about the blocking “Hold on, namesake! We will avenge you.”
