Google Tells Publishers They May Be Demonetized For Certain Ukraine War Content

Google is notifying publishers that they needs to tread carefully when producing content that “exploits, dismisses, or condones” the war in Ukraine.

A message sent late on Friday warned publishers that the demonetization extends to “claims that imply victims are responsible for their own tragedy or similar instances of victim blaming, such as claims that Ukraine is committing genocide or deliberately attacking its own citizens.” Google also indicated that it may also demonetize for other reasons.
