On Wednesday, Twitter ‘permanently suspended’ retired US Marine Corps officer Scott Ritter.
By disputing Ukrainian authorities’ accusations that Russian soldiers massacred residents in Bucha near Kiev, Twitter accused the former UN weapons inspector of participating in prohibited behavior.
On his Telegram channel, Ritter shared a screenshot of the message he received.
“So apparently I’ve been suspended from Twitter for the crime of challenging the orthodox narrative of the so-called Bucha massacre”
He said hehad appealed the decision adding that “Freedom of speech in America today is an endangered concept.”
RT reports: According to the screenshot, Twitter’s censors had decided that Ritter violated their rules against “harassment and abuse” by saying the Ukrainian police had committed crimes against humanity in Bucha, and were trying to shift blame onto Russia with US help.
