Your link to “the main RT channel” is also working normally. The lead story was the Crimean Referendum. The RT Russin channel was also working. I did see the message from the FR link, but all the normal approaches to RT worked just fine.

Yup, it just came back up a bit ago.
All the old links to videos have not yet been restored...maybe just taking time for that.

0bama's "sanctions" also include reporting TOS violations to Facebook for Pooty Poot's Facebook account... and no Tetris or Chocolate Milk for one week.
