Ukraine is pushing for the global ban of RT after a presenter called for the drowning of Ukrainian children

Kyiv is describing Russian state broadcasters as a catalyst for genocide, after one of RT’s (Russia Today) presenters called for children to be drowned.

RT presenter Anton Krasovsky said children who criticised Russia should be “thrown straight into a river”.

Krasovsky is a journalist, and pro-war commentator who has been with RT for two years.

He has been sanctioned by the European Union and suspended for his derogatory comments.

Anton Krasovsky has been suspended for his comments.

RT’s editor-in-chief, Margarita Simonya, described the comments as “disgusting”, and said Krasovsky’s views were not shared by the network.

Krasovsky made the comments while responding to claims of Ukrainian children telling a Russian author they would live better lives if Moscow did not occupy their country.

“They should have been drowned in the Tysyna (river). “Just drown those children, drown them,” he said.

Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said “governments which have still not banned RT must watch this excerpt.”

“Aggressive genocide incitement (we will put this person on trial for it), which has nothing to do with freedom of speech. Ban RT worldwide.”

Moscow denies its forces have committed war crimes, and maintains the war in Ukraine is a special military operation.

Russian state-media has remained in support of the war in Ukraine.

TikTok implements stricter guidelines on weight-loss drug promotion

Published

on

TikTok is tightening its regulations on influencers who promote weight-loss drugs like Ozempic.

With over 170 million users in the US, the app aims to prevent the spread of potentially harmful content related to rapid weight loss.

Starting in May, TikTok will prohibit influencers from posting “before-and-after” photos and restrict minors from accessing weight-loss content deemed risky. The crackdown extends to any content promoting drastic weight loss methods, aiming to combat the promotion of unrealistic body standards.

However, some influencers, like Dave Knapp and Kim Carlos, criticise the move, arguing it discriminates against those with health conditions. Others fear losing their income as TikTok takes down their content, prompting concerns about the platform’s future amid potential US bans.

As TikTok enforces stricter guidelines, influencers may seek alternative platforms to share weight-loss content. Despite the popularity of drugs like Ozempic and Wegovy, the crackdown reflects growing concerns about the impact of such promotions on user health.
