Moscow : Social media platforms and many big companies are getting Ukraine’s support in the war between Russia and Ukraine. Google has not only stopped Google Pay services in Russia but has also blocked several government apps from the Google Play Store. Meanwhile, several Facebook posts are claiming that porn website Pornhub has also been banned in Russia due to Ukraine attack. But what is the truth of this claim? A website named Fulfact has investigated this. According to the report of Fulfact, some screenshots on Facebook and Twitter are from 25 February 2022. It has been retweeted by around 20,000 people. The post claims that anyone trying to open Pornhub in Russia is seeing a Ukraine flag with a Ukrainian flag and saying that the ‘content has been stopped’. The report said that the tweet made on February 25 at 4:56 pm cannot be verified.

Website opened using VPNThe report said that three fact checkers – Logically, Butek and Snopes – used a software tool called VPN to open Pornhub in Russia. All three claimed that it was running normally. Several Twitter users have said the same thing. Pornhub was banned in Russia in the past, but apart from some viral posts, no other evidence has been found in this regard that the website has been closed since the Ukraine attack.

Disney has also announced that it will not release any of its films in Russia. Facebook and Instagram have also been closed in Russia.
