You Will Know Them by Their Fruits

15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

Matthew 7:15-20 New King James Version

If it bears apples, it is an apple tree. If it is an apple tree, it bears apples.

If it’s RT, it gives pro-Russia news.

RT has regularly been described as a major propaganda outlet for the Russian government and its foreign policy.[2] Academics, fact-checkers, and news reporters (including some current and former RT reporters) have identified RT as a purveyor of disinformation[58] and conspiracy theories.[64] UK media regulator Ofcom has repeatedly found RT to have breached its rules on impartiality, including multiple instances in which RT broadcast “materially misleading” content.[71]

In 2012, RT’s editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan compared the channel to the Russian Ministry of Defence.[72] Referring to the Russo-Georgian War, she stated that it was “waging an information war, and with the entire Western world”.[17][73] In September 2017, RT America was ordered to register as a foreign agent with the United States Department of Justice under the Foreign Agents Registration Act.[74]

RT was banned in Ukraine in 2014 after Russia’s annexation of Crimea;[75] Latvia and Lithuania implemented similar bans in 2020.[76][77] Germany banned RT DE in February 2022.[78] After the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine, Poland and then the entire European Union announced they were formally banning RT as well, while independent service providers in over 10 countries suspended broadcasts of RT.[79][80] Social media websites followed by blocking external links to RT’s website and restricting access to RT’s content.[81][82] Microsoft removed RT from their app store and de-ranked their search results on Bing,[83][84] while Apple removed the RT app from all countries except for Russia.[85]

2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine

On 27 February, the president of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen announced the European Union would ban RT and Sputnik (plus their subsidiaries) from operating in its 27 member countries.[142] The ban resulted in RT being blocked on downstream television networks located outside EU, such as the United Kingdom and Singapore as they were dependent on European companies for the signal feed to RT.[143][144] On 27 February, Canadian telecom companies Shaw, Rogers, Bell and Telus announced they would no longer offer RT in their channel lineups.[145] This move was praised by Canada’s Minister of Canadian Heritage Pablo Rodriguez who called the network the “propaganda arm” of Vladimir Putin.[146] On 28 February, Ofcom announced they had opened 15 expedited investigations into RT.[147] These investigations will be focused on the 15 news editions broadcast on 27 February between 05:00 and 19:00 and will check if the coverage broke impartiality requirements in the broadcast code.[148] On 2 March, the regulation was published which meant the ban was in force.[149]

Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok made RT’s and Sputnik’s social media content unavailable to users in the European Union on 28 February.[150][151] Microsoft removed RT and Sputnik from MSN, the Microsoft Store, and the Microsoft Advertising network on the same day.[152] YouTube, on 1 March, banned access to all RT and Sputnik channels on its platform in Europe (including Britain).[a][81][153] Apple followed by removing RT and Sputnik from its App Store in all countries except Russia.[154] Roku dropped the RT app from its channel store,[155] while DirecTV pulled RT America from its channel lineup.[156] New Zealand satellite television provider Sky also removed RT, citing complaints from customers and consultation with the Broadcasting Standards Authority.[157] Reddit blocked new outgoing links to RT and Sputnik on 3 March.[158] On 11 March, YouTube blocked RT and Sputnik worldwide.[159]

Between 22 and 26 February 2022, a couple of days before and after the Russian invasion of Ukraine, “posts on Facebook from RT and Sputnik got more than 5 million likes, shares and comments”. On YouTube, videos of “false stories, claiming that Ukrainians had attacked Russians or describing a ‘genocide’ against Russian-speaking Ukrainians in the separatist Donbas region,” were watched “73 million times.”[160] During the invasion, hacktivist collective Anonymous launched a distributed denial of service attack that temporarily disabled the websites of RT and other Russian government-controlled organizations.[161][162] In March 2022, RT America closed and most of its staff ceased to work for the outlet.[23] RT began selling merchandise emblazoned with the “Z” military symbol – a pro-Kremlin and pro-war emblem – a few days after the start of the invasion.[163]
